Now that is it is summer and it gets hot real fast we get up around 4 or 5. Usually that early we move the cows, cows move a lot better when the weather is cool. Usually sometime in the middle of the day we come back and eat lunch and go out and build fence. If it is a slow day I will ride colts for me or for other people that gave them to me to train. By then it is evening and Mom feeds us supper and we usually go to bed pretty early.
Later on if I am running a place I want to run it like this. The older generation, they kind of do it like Grandpa did it. I think there is a lot more, I have a lot of buddies who just went to college and any time you bring up Holistic Management or Allan Savory they have heard about it and know the basic idea. So I think there is a better chance to get my generation doing this than it is my Dad’s generation.
