Ep 31: Are you “On the Fence” of Barbed or High Tensile?

July 22, 2021

FENCES.  It’s a part of every ranch in the country.  While some components of fencing have changed over the years, for the most part, barbed wire fences are traditionally what is used today.  Jay Clark, with Clark Ranch out of Brownwood, TX, joins me as we discuss barbed wire versus high tensile fencing.

Much of our work as ranchers revolves around managing and protecting our investment in land, livestock, and other assets.  But what about protection over things you can’t control, like the cattle markets and weather.  Errol Rice of Ranchers Insurance details two products available from the USDA’s Risk Management’s Agency:  The Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) and Pasture Range Forage Insurance (PRF).

Ep 25: Angus…staying relevant to the commercial producer.

June 3, 2021

In 1873 two bulls of this breed were exhibited at the Kansas City Livestock Exposition.  Some considered them freaks because they had no horns and where straight black.  Today it’s the largest cattle breed in the country with a branded beef marketing program like no other.  Mark McCully, CEO for the American Angus Association joins us to talk about how the breed has evolved, targeted breeding programs for the commercial rancher, and improvements he feels could be made in the angus cow.

Ep 24: The BIG Meeting on the BIG 4

May 26, 2021

It’s never been done before, but the concern in the cattle industry over the integrity of our markets and packer concentration brought the member leaders of six livestock groups together for one meeting.  Three of those representatives in attendance at that meeting join me for a discussion about what was talked about, what’s at stake, and what success looks like to them.
