It really would be nice to not be harassed constantly for not being bias on what cattle are out of that sell here. Just goes to show that the competition can't handle it when we are honest on what they are out of. I felt it necessary though to show an example of how unprofessional they can be because most of the public doesn't know what really goes on behind the scenes.

Yesterday I received a call from a couple in Kansas wanting to come look at sale cattle...seemed like another typical opportunity to show new customers what we have to offer. After greeting them when they arrived we headed out to the runs and began going through pedigrees. The husband pulled me to the side and spoke quietly about why they were here and what they wanted to achieve. He told me they had just recently lost their 13 year old son right before their county fair and he had really sparked interest in showing cattle over the last few years. They have plans now to purchase steers and heifers for kids in their area that can't afford a competitive calf as well as buying heifers to make club calf females that they can eventually raise offspring to sell to juniors with the profits generated going to scholarship money in memory of their son. It's days like yesterday when you meet certain people that change your life. Instead of dwelling on the negative things in life it's better to see the positives and move forward. I was humbled and reminded that this is why I love what I do for a living...count your blessings because you only get to do this once!
