"As other measures of our stewardship and whilst i am a harsh critic of america for exporting the mindset and tools that created this mess i am also an admirers of the best american farmers when i want to learn how to rebuild the soil on my farm. I tune into greg judy from missouri. I see those hundreds of fine red cattle being moved twice daily through those fields rich and flowers and insects and birds and hear him waxing lyrical about how he has mended his soil. American farming may be a little less shiny and perfect in my mind now than when i was twenty but she still has a powerful role to play in us navigating to the future i think the future is emerging from the wreckage of that post war american farming system.

"It breaks down way faster absolutely because there isn't de wermer in the manure. Yeah the chemicals. They're not killing the the soil or sterilizing the soil essentially so that soil life. You know in People who have farms in recognizing that it's it's it's about soil. it's about the microbes in the loyal. And we go a step further. We have Pastured poultry out there following the room in an animal so you know a few days after a few days after the sheep have eaten area down and taken that nutrient now often taken that grass often turned it into into meet what we do. Is we follow them with chicken tractors and the chickens kind of sanitize the pasture. They scratched the the you know the manure and they spread it evenly in the the air rate the soil and then they leave behind and eat bugs. And you know parasites anything that we could be growing. They eat that and then they leave their fertilizer pined and then the grass you know two three weeks. After the chickens have been an area the grass just goes crazy. Yeah well because nyc manures really high in nitrogen right exactly so and probably not as high and other organic matter that you're going to get from your room in right so it's It's a nice little ecosystem so we're trying to. We're trying to get back to you. Know the way nature does things and kind of just see what works and what else do your sheep and goats eat like are they mostly able to just eat grass through this spring summer fall. Yeah they're just they're pretty much just grass and then in the in the wintertime and we pulled them into the barn around december and for those months they just eat the. Hey that was actually cut on this property and We won't be cutting. Hey this year. We're going to let jacob cut hey elsewhere and bring it to us but What's the reason for that to let the grass kind of so the reason is Yeah we're gonna we're gonna import that nutrient so instead of Cutting hey here would require us to use a lot of you. Know cutting hay and cutting hay and cutting. Hey you're gonna have to eventually put something back. You know fertilizer back in there. And then so we're gonna we're gonna let the folks who cut. Hey hey then. We're not gonna own any of that equipment or do any of that. We're going to let that happen off off arm and then anyone who wants to do that and we'll import that nutrient so we'll keep trying to keep all of our nutrients in our soil and we're trying to you know eventually what we'd like to do is be a hundred percent not relying on any. Hey and. I don't know if that's possible but we're gonna find out. How would you make it through the winner then. graze all winter. You can't be hard on field right. People complain about the mud at least here in western washington moving enough. Then you might be able to get away with it. I know there's a guy in the midwest greg judy. He's a pretty famous dude on youtube. You can check him out but He he has just cows and sheep together out on pasture all the time and he moves them moves a moves. It doesn't by any. Hey and i'm like okay. That's all yeah. He got his pastors over the decades. You know able to sustain under a hundred percent of what they need so we're not there yet. That's a lofty goal that we'd like to try to do close system. Everything comes from air. I guess the only thing you're exporting then would be your meat and whatever else you're growing right right talk about some of those other things that you're growing other than meat to like you have all of trees out here..

"No and we have not We haven't lost one animal yet. Bracingly and you know it's interesting because we have coyote. We've got mountain lion but we've not. I'm not saying we won't wedneday but we have yet to lose one animal interesting. Yeah that is fascinating have the goats retain some sort of like perimeter fence or well. Yeah so we have the outer fence of the property. Which has you know basically five strands of barbed wire. That's not gonna stop it. Go but they just once. They learned their area. They've just don't leave. They stay pretty close. Got it so yeah and then you said you have chickens as well we eat so we have a partner farm who've We've baseline her property. And she's kinda in our system of knowing she's doing things right she kinda and she does poultry for a soap. Wrap our supply chain is made of five different family ranch. All located here in northeast oklahoma. Our biggest goal anthony was to create a a system where farmers could get a fair price for their products. That are growing because a huge problem. I mean farmers are getting literally crushed at the livestock yard. And if you're doing things right and you're stepping up. Say hey i'm gonna do things differently. I think there ought to be value in that and so red become he's creating that value offering them a better price for their beef or chicken in this case. And you know 'cause the Everything under our standards. We know they're doing the right thing. Where no they're managing landon regenerative way and we want those farmers to get rewarded for that and if we could do that. That's how you scale this right. I mean i'm always thinking about you. Know how do we scale regenerative. Because i mean we talked earlier. It's not moving fast enough. I mean at this rate. It's gonna take one hundred years but by doing that. Offering these farmers a good price. Where they can make a living again is one step in the right direction. What are the reasons why you think it's it's tough discovery. Now i mean i. I have a bunch of thoughts on. This is one nine major question. I asked curious in your thoughts. Some of the solutions amy. I think number one Older farmers are less likely to change. That's just number one in. Oh it's it's the whole thing. I've been doing this. This way. my whole life and they're just less receptive to change right number two. Is you know if i go in to a farmer and tell him. Hey i want you to Take your cattle and move them every day with electric vincent. He's probably gonna laugh at me in there. They're saying way more work. I think in reality. It's not that bad. But that's what the what's what they see when when they hear that But you know the the flip side to that anthony. Is that if you start with a thousand acres right and you're running a hundred. Let's say hundred head on that thousand acres. You think that's all you can do if you just cut that in half that's better than what you started with and rotating your back and forth at least at some as a trend in the right direction and perhaps you can run more. Handles that way so when you can start a conversation like that eight out doing and moving them every single day but let's just your paddocks in half that's easy. I mean we can run a temporary electric fence down. One side of your property at half. And that's better than what you were doing. So you start the conversation that way and then when they begin to see the effects of it and the compounding effects of oh i can have more animals are generating more revenue. I have an outlet like a rep. That i can sell to a fair price. It starts to make that conversation much easier. I this is a a big fan. Greg judy in the stuff does as well. And he's talking about the staff is like yeah. Anything in the right direction is better but there. There's that's why it is confusing. Like what is when is across threshold from what you said before you had six packs. Now it's twelve way different. That was grass-fed internet and there's so much nuance here. And so much confusion even when people who are trying to learn stuff and all the details behind it. I mean i think is another huge one is old farmers change. There's also a lot of old farmers who are retiring or dying that have a lot of land and no generation wants to come behind them and do anything with it they they wanna do is parcel it off and sell it to people who want land for recreation and even see not in the last two years year around austin has been insane and the amount of people from the city the cove accelerated everybody's migration people from larger cities are moving here and people from austin moving out to some sort of neighboring rural area says great for people in rural areas. But now you're getting people who by fifty five hundred acres just for recreation leak leisure that used to be farmland our just letting sit there and so the the also last year two years price of land has absolutely skyrocketed so you have the availability of land decreasing the size of land decreasing into smaller parcels and the price of it increasing rapidly and the amount of knowledge from people. Like i mean you growing up with all this history being able to go back as you have quite a log up but somebody with their twenty five thirty thirty five forty wanting to buy land to do.

"I'm thinking of all the the farmers out there the people within this space that are deemed to be successful when I think would have the street cred to back it up. I'm thinking of people like Greg Judy Jam Joel Salatin Samples Dahrendorf having all these guys Hustle Hustle Hustle nonstop. I've interviewed several former Joel. Salatin interns in it's like Joel is the poster child for just getting out there in Boston. Ass In people said that they have never seen anybody bail. Hail with Joel has and these are people saying it over like a twenty year period of difference between when they apprentice for him so this guy has been a beast since day one and I think that's a big part of success. It's obviously not as equipment as you look at the stuff he's farming within. It's very simple low tech. When it's work time it is work time in it is salads in mode not just normal person? I work mode that trend if you look at those people there is a big part of their success is just determined to not just the smartness with which they do work but when they actually get to work they are cranking. That's how it's gotTa be when you're when you're on your on you just gotTa go for it. <hes> cut the distractions and stuff like that. I mean it's the same all my farm. I'm definitely good at that <hes> I I struggle when I do work on the computer like that's something that you're probably better than I am because you definitely do more of that than I do but <hes> I mean yeah it's just it's like anything else. When you're GONNA do do one thing do that? One thing and get it done for you. Move onto the next thing you know so many people myself included have a hard time you go on the computer. You can write something in or work on some piece of content and then you know little notifications of distractions tug argued one way or the other <hes> so we need to like you know quit the browser. Turn it off on your look at it disconnects from the internet or something like that you know cut those destruction so that you can just focus in get this thing done yet was watching that Steve Aoki's documentary that you told me about a Netflix in he's just a beast in terms of his work load and I was thinking about this lot regardless of what the work is you do farming or whatnot. I like the idea of being such a hard worker that if people came to work alongside you they would describe you just as they would have described Salatin like Holy Shit. It is unbelievable how hard that guy works or how much work is doing. I could barely keep up and I think if you can be in that position where people come and they cannot keep up with you to me. That's a point of pride and that's something I feel like is been lost in a lot of modern day work ethic and I think hustle like that should be brought back. I agree. I think it's been lost and forgotten in the sense like you know you hear guys like I don't want to tie too much into politics. <unk> Bernie Sanders talk about the rich people will get away things in this seems to be this mentality day. Maybe it's because like the the academic scene has become so hard left wing that they just think that guys like you and me just show up and it's all there for us like we we just show up in in because we're white and men that it's all just there for us and <hes> to be completely honest..

"Get back to the phone lines. Right now, we have not been in Iowa today. So let's go to my friend, Charlotte. Hey, charlotte. Welcome to the pet show. Hello. Hi. How are you today? Good. Thank you. I'm doing super. What can I do to help you or your pets out? I have a senior dog, and she has displeasure we take he's put her on a pain medication. I was just wondering if there was anything we could do in addition to that help alleviate some of her pain. Yeah. There are a few things number one number one. What type of dog is it? She is a yellow lab mix. Okay. And she's how old. Ecksteen sixteen. God bless her. The vet. I'm sure the vet is doing everything they can do. However, let me just explain a couple of things, and I don't know what the availalbe I know you in relatively big city in Iowa or a small town, Charlotte county. Okay. One of the things that living in a large area has they have a different specialty organizations, for example here in southern California. They actually have physical therapy for dog. So you can take them to hydrotherapy where they can learn to walk on a treadmill underwater. This massage therapy chiropractic, acupuncture, acupressure, there's so many different things can be done. I'm assuming you're doing everything you can't for sixteen year old dog. What makes you think the dog is a lot of pain? Just the way she walks and her action is he give me a dog pain medication. Okay. Here's what I'm gonna do. Okay. There's a product on the market. It's made right here. I live in southern California by incredible company called nature Vic. It's hempseed oil. Now, we all know the benefits of hempseed oil. In fact, I talk about it all the time because I suffer with pretty severe rheumatoid arthritis and hempseed oil is made a difference in my life. So what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna send you some special hempseed oil as I said it's made by nature at right here in Temecula, California. There's different forms. So I'm going to send you the hempseed formula. Specifically for joint health is going to make all the difference in the world that a sixteen year old. I don't know. I gotta be honest with you a good majority of the dogs. I've sent this to have used have said it has made a difference. So in conjunction with everything you're run it by the vet is well, I'm going to send it to you. But I would run it by the vet as well. I think the hempseed oil may make a difference with the pain. We don't know at sixteen years old. And it depends on severity of the hip despisers number one number two number three at sixteen years old and not going to do any surgery, and obviously they're not going to operate for hick displays at this point. But there's no reason that any dog any cat or any human being nowadays is. In pain. So I'm glad he's using some pain medicine with you. But I'm also going to send you some of this hempseed oil, and can you give me a call back and let me know how it's working. And it's really it's really easy. So this hempseed specifically for the joints sixteen years old guy doing something right with your labrador, Charlotte in Iowa. Dog's name. Molly. How long have you had Molly? Two thousand thirteen. Dr she's already a little older when you adopted her. Of course. Of course, that's a great sign on cars who would stop very. Anyway, Sean give you give me a big hug and kiss. That was my grandmother's name, I love the name, Molly, give her a hug and kiss. I'm gonna put you on hold, and I'm actually going to send you I'm going to send you some some nature vets hempseed oil specifically for the us. Go costuming conjoining, yucca. Just an incredible product I've been working with this company for well. Over twenty five years. Great organization isn't going to make a difference on a sixteen year old dog fingers crossed Mets. Hope it does that I want you to remember that is really no reason that any dog or Uman nowadays are is in pain. There are so many great medications on the market. However, I want you also to understand. There's alternative veterinary veterinary the greatest people, but there are alternative veterinarians as well. In some regular practicing acupuncture, acupressure, all of these things can make I have a friend of mine that has an old German shepherd and everyone thought the dog was gone, but she's been going to hydrotherapy and. Sashi therapy. And and cold laser therapy. Which is something you might want to talk to you about. And it's made all the difference in terms of the the quality of life that the dog is having. So sometimes have to look at the quantity. We really have to look at the quality of life. Sixteen years old a hug and kiss every day and try to keep her out as much pain as you possibly can. Hey, the phone number here at the pet show. Eight seven seven seven two five eighty two fifty five. I we're gonna get to you. Greg Judy John and Ken, but right now, I got a warning for you spring is in the air and like everywhere else in the country everyone's trying to be environmentally conscious dog on his warrant to keep pets away from compost bands, due to mold threat as food rots produces compounds that potentially fatal when ingested by animals as food rots, the mold that occurs can produce combats Michael toxins mycotoxin season naturally occurring substances while sometimes could be benefit things.

"greg judy" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"Let's get to it. Good morning welcomed undisputed. We are live from LA Johnny taffy was skip Bayless, Shannon. Sharpe. Judy. How are you? Great. How are you? I'm better than Shannon Sharpe. Nightmare continues. He has to talk about Tom Brady for two more weeks. I'm so sorry for you feel for you go. I hated for you. I suffer for you. I cringe for you every morning when I wake up the first thing, I think of as poor, Shannon. Actually, we're gonna talk about his office lab play. You'll be talking about here for another five six years. How you doing Jeanie? I'm Greg Judy over there today. Nice Nice. jinyan. Well, I looked pretty good. Colors. Really well on that note a lot to get to today, apparently not everyone is a fan of Shannon's guy walk to them. Everyone. We're going to tell you about that. And then we'll skip admit that Tom Brady actually does have a lot of help. So without mean said let's start with the patriots Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are set to appear in their ninth Super Bowl together speculation of tension between the two has been in the news for years, but that is the complete opposite of a report that the two exchan- quote love ios after Sunday's AFC championship game different to say love ya. Not love you guys. Keep that in mind that is true today Brady was asked about their relationship and praised his coach. Let's take a listen, we've always gotten along great. We've worked together for nineteen years. So you know, we've been in the same had the same goals in my for nineteen years. And he's been just a great great mentor in my life. Great coach, he's taught me, you know, more than you know, anyone ever could about the game of football. You know, I've always just loved playing here and playing for him. He's the greatest coach of all time, and we just had some incredible moments together. Shannon. Do you believe Radi? No. Is easy to say skip in a moment. Like that you had just one day FC championship gap. Probably one of your signature wins throughout all the playoff game that you've had I think what thirty nine now skip. This was probably one of the more signature wins that you've had a very very long time, and you've had some good playoff wins. So I didn't expect him to say in that moment, man. I hate you. I hate you two things are really good people normally act accordingly, but we know through that ship Seth Wicca sham article published about a year and a half ago on ESPN and things were not very good. Yeah. I don't know about you skip. But anytime, I buy something the always get a receipt, especially if it's something that I might return because I want them to know that hey, I did purchase it from you on this date, and I don't know long want this item. I want to return to get my money back. And when people say certain things always keep the receipt there, Jim there was a great interview. Tom brady. Tom Brady said Bill is not the easiest guy to play for all his players will attest to that. Yeah. When asked if he feels appreciated I plea the field. Thank you, everybody in general would want to be appreciated more at work and in their professional life. Now, we know he's not talking about Mr. craft because he had the very special relationship with Mr. Bob Kraft, Mr. craft treats him as if he's his son is hard to believe that he loved cramp who probably more prominent of all the sons that we sit right next to him in in the in the box all the time. Yup. It'd be hold him in. How regard the whole radio on that? Tom Brady's mob with going through what she was going through. Yeah. Mr. crap gave her a ring that only the players and coaches gave. So we know Tom Brady knows Mr. crap appreciates him loves him. Sure. I'm not. So sure he feels that way. Because we know if reported. That Tom does not understand. Why he does not have a better relationship? Yeah. We coach belching. So now in this moment of bliss was bliss, man. They go into another bowl the nighttime. It's euphoria. Yes. Felt this feeling before. There's there's nothing quite like that feeling especially a win on the road on the row. So I wasn't expected him to say in that moment, you know, skipped my crowning one of my chronic achievement..
"greg judy" Discussed on Working Cows Podcast
"Have cash flow to put back into the business. And so how do you get started in ranching without debt, you know? And I think that's why Greg judy's book, no, no risk ranching custom grazing on lease land is so important. And I think that's maybe that most out of the box bit of that whole idea is the idea that I'm going to find leases that Akao can afford to pay for and I think. We've got hopefully got future episodes coming up with people who are actually doing that on the ground in their area in Abu Greg Judy did it for a long time and made it work for him. And and it can be done. I'm we're going to get to this in a minute. But I I really we need to get away from being slaved to this idea that it can't be done here that won't work here that can't be done here. It works other places, but it won't work here. And so I'm going to try and feature producers who are putting these things to work in their environment in their place where they are not having to go somewhere else to find it. But we got to reduce debt increase cash flow. We need to work on E economic analysis and actually analyze the business objectively not say, well, I really like this part of the business and even though it's a major loser. As far as economics is concerned. We're going to keep doing it. We need to analyze those parts of the business and actually. Try to put them in inaction implement them on our on our operations, some other things that we can do to work on our business is that we could sit down and develop marketing plans say, you know, when based on the amount of moisture we've gotten based on the amount of rain we've gotten we are going to enact a marketing plan at this time. We're going to say if we don't have this much rain by this time, these this class of cattle from our heard are going to go, and I guess what I would recommend based on my discussions with other people is that we look at maybe marketing, the overvalued animals in our heard I and keeping some of those that are undervalued some of those that are still producing in our environment, but not going to perform well in the sale ring, and that we try to capture that appreciation in cow itself rather than. Just selling off the older animals, I or the depreciated animals I, but we try to capture some of that appreciation in our cowherd first. So putting a marketing plan in place and sticking to it. You know, plans are great. But if they're not implemented, they're just writing they're just pieces of paper, and we we need to have the guts to implement these plans sometimes and not worry about what the neighbors are going to think, but worry about how am I going to make this business an enjoyable business to be a part of for everyone who is a part of it from our wives and our children to people who work with us and work for us. How can we make this a more enjoyable endeavor? And I think again upping profitability is a big part of that. Because being broke isn't fun. The next thing that we need to think about as we're working on ourselves as we're preparing ourselves to be more successful managers of these ranch business. Is that we need to think about some continuing education look around find the people in your area who are putting on these continuing education seminars. A lot of times they are very affordable. A lot of times the most expensive part of the whole deal is either the travel or the time that it takes to go and to be a part of it. And we need to find ways to free ourselves up to be a part of those things, and, you know, not just because we want to go there and gather information, but we also want to expose ourselves to different ways of thinking we want to have our paradigm is challenged. We wanna make sure that we're not getting comfortable and complacent in the way, we're thinking we want to make sure that people have opportunity to tell us that what were the way we're thinking is not a good way of thinking or not a smart way of thinking. But maybe even more than all of that is we want to have an opportunity to build a network of people. Especially if if the continuing education seminar is close to your home having that network of people who are thinking differently, or at least open to having their paradigm. Challenged can be such a huge thing, you know, and and recently received someone reached out to me and said, you know, is there anybody doing anything like Greg Judy was talking about in his area where they're meeting on a monthly basis. And I said, you know, I don't know anybody doing anything like that. But we can start it. You know, we can start getting together, and we can start talking about how we're managing our ranch businesses and in different things like that. So finding people networking finding people who in your area are thinking differently and are willing to open open up their ranch to you and say, here's what we're doing. What do you think could we could do better and wh- what are you gonna take home to hear place and steal the ideas that we are putting into place here? And and how. How are you going to better yourself as a result of this network of people who are challenging the way each other's think and operate and the last thing that I'll say this isn't necessarily play on the on the title of this podcast working cows. But you know, one of the things that I think we need a lot more of an industry is creativity will start their creativity. We need a lot more creativity in industry, and when I when I talked to people like, Joel salads, and and and Steve Kenyon. And I look at their operations. They aren't they don't have brand new shiny things that are doing the work that they need done on their place. What they have our minds that think way outside the box about how they can solve a problem. And what pit him is is that for me is Joel Sal and talking about the shade that they take around and they put it in play. Where they need to do to increase the hurt impact. They need to up the soil life. They need to break off the cap the top of that. Of that piece of ground. That's maybe got rocky structure to it or something else, and they need to break that up, and they put that shade where they need it. Well, that shade isn't expanded wagon chassis and some fabric across the top very affordable to make something they could make right there out of things they already had. They didn't have to go buy something, they just made it. And so, you know, those are things that we need to start looking around. What are we already have here? How can we use? What we've already got here to fix the problem that we're facing rather than going out and buying that piece of iron, you know, as as Wally Olson said every piece of iron you put on that cows back. She's got to carry it that calf has got a service that debt that calf has got a service at how do we go about finding things that we've already got that can may be a solution to the problem in in some creativity, and some ingenuity another thing. Steve Kenyon, recently posted another picture of his solar rock picker, which is. Actually, a mobile watering trough that he has taken from mostly parts of what he had their probably other than the solar panel or all things he had sitting around there. And he just posted another video to Facebook all embedded in the show notes page working cows dot net slash fifty five of a new tweak that he made to that to keep the valve open. So that it doesn't free. So that he can continue to use it longer through the winter and have access to water there. And so just some creativity that I think is is just sit down and think creativity or I think it was Picasso said inspiration strikes when I'm working like creativity isn't just some people aren't just more creative than others necessarily. There is some giftedness. There is some God made me this way. But creativity is something that comes through sweat working hard thinking. Thinking hard saying this is the problem. These are the things I've got my my personality is I go on a walk. And I look at the things that I've got land around. And I say what could I use? How could I use that to fix the problem that I'm facing right now rather than going and buying something new from the store that that is expensive? And that is maybe not the perfect solution to the problem. It just looks like it'll fit, and we just need to think think creatively. And the other thing that I think is necessary as we start to really challenge some industry paradigm is positively we need to be positive about the opportunities that are before us and rather than thinking negatively and thinking this won't work here. This can't be done here. I don't know somebody who has seen a broader spectrum of success as far as ecology is concerned, then you'll hawn's Eastman. But he's he said it on the podcast these things work everywhere. They're tried and he's seen at work in desert regions. He's seen at work in the tropical. Regency seen at work in the northern United States and and into Canada where there are where there's snow and other challenges. So we just have to be positive about the fact that we can try this and we can accomplish it. And we can do something different. We can do something out of the box. We have to be willing to say, I'm willing to have the neighbors think I'm crazy and do something different. Do something out of the box think differently about the challenges that are facing us. And so those are some of the things that we need to be willing to just say, you know, what I know that there are a lot of reasons this won't work or I could come up with lotteries. Ines this won't work. But for the success of my ranch business, it has to work. And so I'm going to think creatively. And I'm going to think positively and I'm gonna find a way to make this. Happen. And I'm going to do it. Those are some of the things that I've been thinking about as I have been on this journey over the last year, the working house podcast, really appreciate all the support and all the feedback. And I would really appreciate some feedback on this episode if you wouldn't mind reaching out to me working cows dot net slash contact. Facebook dot com slash working cows, Twitter dot com slash Y, P Klay Connery reach out to me any of those places and get in touch and just let me know what you're thinking about about this episode. How what is what is it? How is it challenge? You am. I crazy am I. Outta my gourd. You want to whatever you wanna tell me just give you some feedback. And let's hear from you about this episode in some of your thoughts regarding this topic of of finding ways into the industry and finding ways to put your cows to work for you and finding ways to work with your cows rather than against them and finding ways to work on yourself as a manager of assets and resources through continuing education, and those types of things we're kind of in that place where I've got a few different directions. We could go with the working cows podcast. But I don't have another episode recorded just yet as a as of the recording of this episode. I don't have another episode recorded just yet. But I promise we'll be back next week. With another episode of the working cows podcast episode fifty six of the working cows podcast coming out next week.

"Truck and a nineteen seventy nine. So you pick up. Choke it got me a word. Wild me to new Rooney's cattle when testing grazing. I didn't need own a trailer. I didn't need own big truck. The Catalonia's paying for on the hauling. I didn't even known anything. So good growth there find your piece of ground that looked like Kraft can talk to win, and if you really good and you get started doing to be neighbors, look at what you're doing and then that you can go asked him, will you like their place. And try and get a leaf. And you know, there's the kneel. You can't afford to pay full lot for if you get to work on off. Because if you're the land owner doesn't want to put more money into that land that's up to you. So you've got to come up with a wire in the post and there's ways to do that. The lar is chief. I mean four thousand thirty rolls, seventy, nine dollars. You can. There's a lot of grams a thing, the law in and move cattle around on that farm in start to make money. What are some of the best ways to train cows to that wire the best way to try to miss the have a pretty good lot when the cat loan drop them off on release form that you could hold those cows on. Let's say happening. I wouldn't go any. I wouldn't go anymore than happening and maybe even a quarter that would be more bent couple of bombs on top. And then I have an off that hot wire about a foot on the inside of that. All way rounded. Quenches ties, aluminum fans in Trump telling you within about two days. It wasn't a count or a Stocker in that group that didn't know what those scenes worth, and they'll go up and lick them and you want a good charge of don't go by that charge or that the Roka forms door don't keep plugging these cheap ones. I'm not gonna name names. I don't make anybody mad doctrine ones we use and that that they bought those charges nuts. Stuff analogy. There's some other Gallagher evenings, you know. But those are the three say Gallagher or knife off of put Jews in at least four ground rock. Most people don't put enough ground Roger. I mean, you've fast in it charged or don't use the piece of copper wire use galvanize alarm or that buried wire, but don't use copper and don't use copper ground galvanize. Got us galvanized rods and minimum sixty. 'cause when you go to somebody's tried that, let this stuff, it didn't work. He goes input the meter. There's no voltage on it because they don't have a good ground or they're using keep charger. So yeah, he at work we've got sixteen foreign. All we used is high. Like if there's on every single one of them at our cows, not get out. And if I was going to forum want calm, just new fog, why don't play railroad put him five wires to three hawks, two rooms and gravel roads that you released in a farm against grab road. I'm pretty comfortable road in four, four hot larks interior fifth, and that's all single. Just one single one for your petting traditions and don't put in a lot of Patty, get your water put in there and then you we use Tipper phone, contemporary fifties drills, and we've taken up a lot of hustle petty than just use these reels than he's much more flexibility when you don't chop up your form and a bunch of tiny permanent Hattie. It just gives you so much more different areas. You can move them in the springtime. He can move them off faster. You got bigger Patty. You can adjust that. And in the in the wintertime was raining. You got bud, you don't have all these days. I hate gay. You've got gate, you gotta mudhole. Well, I told you I wouldn't keep you any longer than thirty minutes and we're, we're kinda against that. So I appreciate your time today. I'd like to give you an opportunity to share with people where they could go to get in touch with you or see where you're going to be in the future if you're doing any kind of schools or or consulting work or anything like that. I'm going to be. I read side is green pastures form dot net here and talk to on that website feels about where I'm thinking out and you hold an annual grazing school every year here at our farm. That's always the first week of may three day and he and Mitchell innocent South African rancher him. And I give it for here at the farm, and then I'm gonna be speaking several different places. I go into all you go to our website and it gives the front, we'll be getting some conferences. But yeah, it's been good. You know, we thought about here and caused her and I do what I can try to help young people started in this and it's really catas- because as out this just this week and is on Monday, I was on a foreign doing people's dot started. Golly, they did everything roles and now they're facing all the debt. They've got all the stuff that they shouldn't have bought. And on my hand, if you just a little bit of research, they went out and conferences in these more season Grazer than jumping in and just spending all this fun needed money. They now that they're between a rock and hard site, and I think we may get him out of it, but it's gonna be tough if me a long pole because they've got the stuff in dead over stuff that didn't need to there. So I guess that's the thing that I would recommend is before you jump in and put her on a hard earned money into it. It doesn't cost anything to read some book, his all the stuff on the internet. But there's another really good resource out. There's called on pastor. It's free. It comes in, you read, it comes into your Email every day. I'm sorry every Tuesday, there's five pre-article in their videos and people all over the faith through putting you doing some pretty neat things on their so called on pastor. And just fourth, we've had Kathy Voth on the working cows podcast, talking about training cows, the weeds and sell after deal. So she's so she's good, and and we'll put a link to her episode in the show notes page and we'll put a link to Greg's website and some other things. Again, that show notes page is working cows dot net, slash fifty three, and we'll, we'll have links to some of the stuff that Greg is mentioned there. So Greg, thank you for your time today. I really appreciate it. Talking with the clay in the good decks. Thanks, lots of good practical stuff. They're really interesting history with Greg, really appreciate his openness and sharing his history and how he got started. And hopefully there's some takeaways air for people who are looking to get started about how they could maybe do that as well. Next week on the show, look into bring back Mary Jo urban from farming without the Bank talking more about leverage this time in about what we need to keep in mind as we seek to use leverage responsibly.

"Path that was an asset and turned it into a liability. Forget about the known. Beatles talking about common. You don't wanna go broke. I mean, aggravates me that I'm been on ranches. I was on a huge ranch in Texas do consulting all the United States down bro four, nine bringing fall regardless and not the millions of town path big for five hundred and have their, and those men are pass were still there three years later, they were not breaking down. Fire is going to even ease. Favor there were toffee. So yeah, I'd with the Dev. I I did all that stuff, but you know what? I did it to make a living in. There's nothing wrong with doing the starting out, but just realize down the road that that may not be good practice. You know when you're starting to when you try to stay in business in a big part of that Macau's deposited across the land sea, he thermal. But yeah, it's the that's the big one. I took big cattle. I mean, I I took eighteen hundred. Register, I didn't, and I can walk to user today on this particular form where I got the, I think it was eleven days of rain without stopping. I can take that form today. And that was around eighteen years ago and still can't really fully. So there if you want to Japan, custom guys, big, here's the recommendation I would have they darn sure you'd have a stack of by fatty and have some hanging there. You do get these big downpours. You can walk those cows and their into feed pay per day or two or three in pay your passionate, get solved. Nothing don't continue moving across the landscape. They will pug your entire farm. That's something I didn't do paid for that small cows. One thousand seven hundred pounds how much it rains. I just keep moving them and then go out there. You might find an imprint in the answer to think it's not gonna, find something eight or ten inches these just on a Lance date or you're not filing compacting your soil. The big house don't make any soon. And I get this all the time, the Packer all the Packers Packers, the death, they don't like the little car through. I don't want a lot more. These things. These people weren't gonna turn my phone. I've said it before, probably maybe not on the on the working cows podcast, but if I can, if I can wean to Cavs or even one and a half Cavs on the same number of acres that you can wean one big calf most times I'm going to win that that math, right. That's right. And there's a big one that that entry lead those data that he in the numbers out there that include that for every hundred pounds of cow weight that you go, the one thousand pounds, he lose him. Artillery. So he got fourteen couldn't house. The math on this. Got an idea for a t shirt that says for Tila drives the bus, and I gotta find a cartoonist to draw for me. So if I've got any cartoonist listening to the working cows podcast, hit me up at working house dot net slash contact because I've got a great idea. I think. Yeah. So you mentioned one of the things that it's gonna take to get started as a willingness to move to a different area of the country where there is a grass available. What else are there? Any other things that we should be thinking about as we look to get started. Absolutely go to every school that make that is posted on. You can afford to get there. It's not going bankrupt to go to. Don't. You need to network. You need to need to go funding group of formers that are very successful grazers and become a mint. I mean, Memphis a- them want doing. We have a group in north Surrey called the Greenville farm on Jack, we meet once a month. Everybody brings a potluck. Dish. We have a meal go out and look and discuss with that former doing his farm. And if you don't have a grazing year and you've got a whole bunch of young guys get start a man, two rooms, the two of you, there's nobody out here is going to back you doing this type of Graham, you start out. I mean, I still have neighbors thinking. I'm just not. Newest journal. I kinda like that. You've got to be willing to have a pretty hard chill you start out. So get ready for this. Don't look for people who embrace you. You're not gonna get that. You're going to be ridiculed because you're doing things, didn't make people very uncomfortable when you do that and they're gonna ridicule us try and get you to come back into the fold and doing the doing the same way. Everybody else. Let me give you a little snake. There's not a whole lot of people making money channel. I talked to a guy yesterday giving up. Fifty acres, beautiful form that Greg, there's just no money these that wouldn't move but dropped his farm from the latest and greatest Proctor. There's the, hey bones that Don Baylor. You got the thirty five right? Good Heyhoe in and he's got every well everything you put down that the what we call overhead. It's got to third with your calves is that you still got a service that debt and those cans ask you own. This don't do know. They asked me to buy that fifty thousand dollars on your baiter. No, so there's no money in the beef Kelvin's today. Medical within the MIR, a lot of -pointment Becca, eve way too much over here. So when I started out, I'll be on, I didn't even have four either all ahead with my truck

"People veils, and you don't need fun. If you don't have insurance on your house burns down, you wish that you know like. So you mentioned the calving season and the grass genetics, and some of those things that you're doing. Those are big management decisions. So what percentage of the cows that you are in charge of the management of? Do you own. On hold what under. Okay, though. In two thousand seven with my last year of custom grazie I use, I use other people's money money as in their cattle and there there, hey, they've advisor Hayes and I enrolled there, hey, on vinyl eath firm. That's how I built the for Philadelphia. I didn't have any money. I mean, I was broken. Working forty hours three contam- trying to do this dome aside and really miserable, you know, long extended curium, going divorce. And so it was his really tough on me, but. At least in land and other people had all of a sudden thirty getting checked him in Bill every month. And if the peak of it, we were running, you know, five to six hundred thousand who the math on that seventy eighty cents a day for Cal for day for months. It had been real money is able to powering the failings it off on Mondays. I bought re- bought Earnhardt cowherds and with all that they were out of death and I put my job and tear on the full rancher today. But I got there running other people's paddle. But today now that I owned my own, I'm making probably a little probably four to five times what I was custom grazing because we run into relief. We've developed a really good classes panels for the demand is through the roof. We get raised enough of the good problem to have in your marketing shorties that you know the price is always gonna remain pretty good shortish day and analysts the grasping the they're just not after the the, the cows that away thousand eleven hundred pounds. We offer five hundred pound cap on grass with no Green Bay fast, visit waiter in breed back and give, you know the Cam by God. They're hard deployed. I know because I cuss them for eight years and Gauley Viggo count, which is a norm today. Go fill those cows, goats. They're just not fall out of my seat here. Thirteen, fourteen hundred pounds bigger than that. You put account like that on grass in Zurich when Tim below zero out there, they're not gonna keep their legal. That's what it's about. Ruined the grants biz the cat or just a harvest their tool, the harvest, the graph. And of course we have to run and chickens and got sick that are lawyers out here. We've got Higgs in the woods and the hair sheets has been a welcome addition because they go after the stuff that category need these forums in the weeds and brush and in Malta for rose bushes and thorn trees. And guess what? That's the primary food source of heresy. They've loved that type of stuff though just grazing sheep behind your cows that the way we do it, the sheep or making the cattle pasture better. Plus we're stone land off. A brush would have been brush hog. So it's just really a win win. When you can figure out how to get the sheep in behind the town. You have talked a little bit about your start in nineteen. Ninety nine. Was there history of ranching in your family or in your own life prior to nineteen ninety nine or how what? What did that. I was born and raised on a dairy farm. I was born in northern Minnesota. We moved here to Missouri nineteen sixty five, and we brought the dairy herd with the Martha too long. We've found out then couldn't make a living doing dairy at Keio, sold the cows, but we kept the cow I'm down my home time is in second grade car left the house. I always down. We had a few beef cattle, but I did not know anything about very, I mean, I didn't have my dad was a crop former more or less like he liked the plows, the grounds and grass just you gave the cattle and I have to hold my hat's off to where my first brook, no risk ranch and dead dedicated. If they Weimar and see bombing told me about him. Garish is draped and threw up north Missouri. That's what changed changed all this meeting, Jim and going to his grade schools at the university of Missouri, and I came home from that. Lineage grazing, stool mine. Gosh, I was still fired up. I couldn't stand. Bill, realizing that way it is. It's the manage. Injin permit management and greasy. People leave out the management. They think intensive and they beat the out in the don't. They don't manage it. They stuffing out of it is not about the stuffing out of this may any. You've got the lease them to homes. That's the hard thing for for cattleman to get over. I, I deal with it on my land owner. You know these guys have been at it for years, Greg, while you'll even the while you walk in the cows away from my farm, you got two weeks. The grass left out here. Like I know I'm gonna leave it. You're wasting it. You're not wasting grasping. You'll even it Biharis. You're gonna have a lot more grass to graze and you come back because you let them it's a phone collector, the more you take off the more you shut down the plant. And so that's what we're focused on. Just taking the tip moving. The cattle for high animal performance animals fan is they're getting the best part of the plant. They're trampling on the ground. So you mentioned cow size as as an important component of your success in ranching. Now, let's look at the custom Grazer and somebody who's trying to start out. Did you never turned away anybody who was willing to pay their bills? Right. I mean you, you took your. Brought that up. That's exactly right. Amanda factor I used the term clay. I actually with the dental mean by that is people brought the panel to me. They poured IVA down about. That's what I got. I mean, it was a great time to form going down the shoes or they'd reaching the trailing just poured on their back and we'll all that. I haven't met just ended up on my born in north mirror, pass mo- killed the dollar g. and the merger manure. So I wasn't getting any breakdown of the manure passed on my phone. This remember the most valuable thing come in on that account. Was that minimum Paul, when you put all these Ivermectin in there and ends up in the mirror Hector even break down, you've taken alive. You turn it into our live -bility. He took them in your path

"Forty to seventy dollars naked for that. So probably run more in the neighborhood of, you know, five to ten dollars an acre, and some of them are free. We've got three phones. We don't pay anything for the. They look like show places and they used to like jump heel. So we are land service company. We go in a car landscaper growing lefty. That looks really nice than Landau just fiber gasping their place like a show place now. And so that's their payment from us is to take a rundown piece of property improve it. Offense on it and make it look. So you sound like the bud Williams of land. You find undervalued land and you turn it into new, turned it into land that is productive. We've been very successful. That's what we do. Give you the idea. I just got Milan played a year and a half ago and twenty acres. I've been watching for years, but the people live back there ended up being a drug house and they, they got rid of the drug. Got rid of the people hold the, they hauled the house on. Okay. 'cause they were cooking meth in it and got rid of that. The f. go, I approached landowners in just like kidding me. You wanna do something this when like, yeah, because my forums hooked onto onto side. Okay, that's where it's kinda neat if you can tell people and get started. If you can just get a land base, what I call homebake. It doesn't have to be maybe acre, and that's your home. Bait, find that by other I don't Hanley Ranya. There's nobody doing anything with it in Missouri. Then you travel around you just. The move recession, and there's a lot of ground not here. Nobody's doing my with got trees. Doughnut phone, Brown fence on maybe people only just run on. We have some owners. Now we've got to those that just for Honey, and we've been able to go in and make the hunting better. And that's a big mistake that mistaken, the truth that has been focusing mechanical destroy hunting, they destroy walleye. No, they don't. Not if they're managing, we're not talking about using using the Columbus method only form and the club of method is you? He turned the count them in the spring, new government in the fall. That doesn't work. You've got to manage these forms, then good vantage it we can. We can keep about thirty to forty percent clover and everytime or guess what our forums. No are just Magnus for deer and Turkey, and so we're really harvest nice and dear now. But again, that's our payment back to those hunters that have land fiber gas. They're used to that looked like a carpet, and somebody wrote town. They don't move them the whole farm of like a carpet. And yes, there's not a deer on there's no food for anything you can't manage in like that. I've over my the course of fifty. This is episode fifty three so good a time as any to mention that if you wanna find links to anything that we mentioned today on the show, it'll be out working cows dot net, slash Fifty-three, working cows, dot net, slash Fifty-three. We'll be the show notes page for today and over the course of, you know, the previous fifty two episodes. One of the things that I've gathered as a nugget is that wildlife and their presence on your ranch or a tip of the hat to you and your management practices and Lutely. Lutely. That's exactly right. 'cause he forms that we had. I tell people when we got him a rabbit would head to pack the wants to make a call. There wasn't anything there. You know, I'm Dari people talking about the are being good man. You walk to the field. That's pretty depressing. There's just a nickel, did you know you need living organisms, you need to live, he needs something going on out there. You need biology in the soil, dear. So we're gonna go to where the brick and then grant and the hit the highest, the highest. That's what they, that's how they have. How revive. So yeah, when you bring talking and that's what we're doing, we're poll grading if we hit an area and they were gone, we don't come back until fully recovered. How long is that on the freedom thirty days in the summer ground, maybe ninety day for more longer, but we don't come back in. So basically ninety nine percent of our farm. There's nothing on you know, into the wildlife and the Turkey and all the other stuff. We started the season rabbit rabbit Rome of things around here. And now we're starting to see random back. That's kind of. What percentage of the year are you managing cows? Do you? Are you managing cows year round or is it just the spring and the summer or how how's that working for you? Full time of three sixty five now or the account camp operation. We're still interested Vive were in the thought of doing grasping Eddie cows him bold messed in really well. Fourth, we've been selecting animals that were just totally home each and if they don't, we just get rid of him. But he done that now for over. Fifteen years in the we've found out our cattle fines term down. We're now in that fouls and hundred pound range in the late. They just got great big guts on to hold a lot of four against a lot of that been like for that account for a heifer doesn't have a nice big on her. We just get rid of because we know that's gonna make account that can say fat on our grants. The wintertime, we grace through the winter, and we do pay as an emergency and get a really deep snore loss of ice. We've got it there. We can feed them. That's not the back boulevard for feeding Datta half a bail for the whole winter. Her animal use soap every thousand pounds awaiting herds for feeding about a half a day though. That's, you know, that's pretty economically account for twenty thirty bucks behave that that doable, we can do that. Sure. Sure. That was one of the more interesting nuggets that I grabbed out of these episodes episode twenty was with Jim garish, and he said that he much prefers the winners in Idaho to the winners in Missouri because of the lack of ice in Idaho, which was kinda surprised. We, we get our share of, I think how's it gets so thick occasion that it will hold the cow and they'll actually take off like they got date on their on the side of Hilter though, you know, we're gonna get like that. You just can't grace. Busy is because they can't push through. So you've gotta get something out there for not very often. I mean this last year I think we had one four, nine door laugh but by days. But again, you need to protect yourself, you know, and is better. I tell people, insurance is people

"Working cows. Podcast episode Fifty-three, welcome to the podcast, the Gibbs producers of platform to discuss and share paradigm, challenging practices, practices that have increased the effectiveness of their operation and the joy that their families have received from this lifestyle. People. Do you everybody Klay Connery host of the working house podcast brought to you by the global egg network. We have on the show today. Greg, Judy, Greg is a guy who has been making a living as Grazer for number of years. Greg is the author of a couple of books, no risk, ranching custom grazing on lease land and comeback farms, rejuvenating, soils, pastures, and profits with livestock grazing management. Greg has been one of the guys that I wanted to have on the show for quite a while and reached out to him and got in touch with them, and we are lucky enough to have him with us here today. So Greg, Judy, thanks for joining me on the working cows podcast. Invited to be here. I would like to start off by getting your perspective on some of the challenges facing young people looking to get started or anyone looking to get started in the ranching industry today. That's a great question. Quay and comes up a lot. I mean, there's a lot of young people out there would love to get back on the land. And of course the biggest, the hurdles that is the cost of the land and the ability of land he'll look across the state and you know, so Mike Vaenster that you've got to be a free enough that you can go over there is win available and I get this a lot. People are like on the east coast where there's millions of people, we can't find weighing on my not gonna ponding land, not when you're in a huge metropolitan or if you ever thin in our town, you know, three or four hundred thousand people poppy not going to find a hundred acres of graph that you can leave. If you can get away from there is rinse central, Missouri here between St Louis and Kansas City. I'm about thirty minutes Norfolk. Columbia was about one hundred and fifty thousand university town several hospital. There's a lot of people that work down. There were out here in the country that we don't be in compromise too much by a lot of build up of house too. So you gotta be willing to relocate. That's the deal. I really think. You know, there's a lot of people that own don't have do not know how to manage to re commune. We go out and find these idle pieces of land and we lease them and you you short story for the short to long stories. We've got sixteen points today in nineteen ninety nine. My first term he got out of debt nine, at least you know the people's laying and none of and custom grazing of people had on. So I. The answer would be you've got to be willing to relocate. You've gotta be, of course, the work, which I think a lot of young people are. I mean, they'd guessing energy and the gumption to do. They still have the offer. Finnity. Could you give me a little bit more perspective on what you mean by idle pieces of land? Are these mismanaged pieces or unmanaged pieces of land or non operator landowners absentee owners? What? What are you talking about there. All over the Mathur's his third, first of all, he cannot lease land. I shouldn't say you can just be more difficult if you're gonna compete against wrong cropland. So if you're in an area or case rents going for hundred fifty to three hundred and fifty dollars acre forget it. You're not gonna be on the lease way because that landowner hitting that income. He's not gonna give you a lease manageable lethal knew that you can even make the leasing, not letting cattles it'd be some kind of specialty cross even do that to the Kappa men are a little bit from him stream is we don't think it's a good thing. I don't think we need to subsidy when you convenient against farmer began subsidies pretty, you know. So you gotta get on land that is ideal for enrolling hill country, and it's not suitable for farming. If you form it. He was story. I was going to leave that kind of he and that's what we go. After we go after lands, I'm I'm gonna have to stuff that nobody wanted. Okay. I'll look for land bit of byu. So this broom Stange all over because people have been hanging every year, not putting any fertilizer back. It doesn't have any fence on it. Maybe the homestead is rundown. There's nobody live there anymore. Just a lot of joke going around. I can go in there and clean that up. You know, I'll build new fence on it, but I've gotta have a minimum of seven to ten year lease. I won't do anything with seven years because it takes a little while to get that thing cleaned up and you know, you wanna get the grass growing and you can do that with livestock unrolling, hey, on it, good grades in management, you can turn a farmer fairly quickly. But again, if you've got to go find a farm that everything there, it's at the corral a good road into the Vinci's passers in good shape out. Good water around here. Gonna give probably forty

"It coats the weed that i'm just giving them something that they've tried before because when i'm giving now is really odd so i put the weed out there thing they'll around a little bit they think well she always gives us something weird but it's always good so let's try to and all i want is for a one cow to get one lead into our consent she's going to get that good nutritional feedback from this weed and she's going to want to eat more so i do this on day five and then i do it on day sick and all the time every time i start feeding weeks i start looking around in the past the camera they trying the weeds in patch and oftentimes second day they have already noted that oh that she feeding crew in right over here because they go when they try and eat it and they're not always successful because every we'd they're used to like how graph how to bite off graph so you know i need to using a fork but i'm really not very good at chopstick that powered is for a cow whose cheinal had kansas leg compared to graph a little bit different so she has to learn so you'll see him like bending over the plants with them you know trying to bite things off just mostly gumming it up and and you'll see mashed things in your pasturing got they haven't got but they are they're learning so if if on the second day i can see they're trying i quit feeding them but if they're not what i feed them one more day there's three days of we and the very last day feed it playing now that's it and then i walked so if you go to my youtube channel you can see cows the coal process we can see how trying and if you get a feel for what it looked like when a cow trying allude or new food and how she tries to find it up past i put all this up there so that people don't get nervous things going wrong they're all going according on it and you know different heard learning their pass through different rates but they all venturi get it and for example montana i grading with a heard that they started grazing everything the same height whether it was a system when it was anything there you go down to the very cool i got a few follow up questions here but first of all let me say that i just so much appreciate this process because there's so many good things that are reinforced by everything that we know about cows for example justin rhodes has a youtube channel he did a great american farm to her he's done some other things in the past and he's more of a homestead or type but he went and talked to guys like greg judy and some of those others on his great american farm tour and he said that one of the things he learned on that tour was that if you want to tame animal down you need to make it so that when you come around good things happen and that's kind of talking about with this process is that when i come around good things happen and they're like it's weird but i'll eat it because it tastes good and i love that part that you mentioned about the the positive nutritional feedback and i think that's a really really good nugget that we can mind for a second talking about the good nutritional feedback and how that plays into them learning to select for weeds and see them in the pasture and say i'll try that okay so you only until you about how that work sure yeah okay so basically what what we found so then tire processes just based off by i just read a whole bunch of things that how animals learn and then i think so the sign of how we know they learn how nutritional feedback impact what they choose basically what they what we've found is that the morning cushy food is the more likely admiral eat it if it has a toss omitted or is low in nutritional value they're probably going to eat much less so for example i like is cream because it's really high nutritional value salary well yeah i'll eat celery but it's it's not as tasty so what we know is the.

"For beginning farmers is where you actually wanna start is developed a profitable livestock business on somebody else's property so don't try to own land don't try to own livestock starting out what greg judy did custom grays on leased land that is the lowest risk way of getting started in ranching all right once you have established that then you think about owning your own livestock but still on somebody else's property and the last step is actually buying land because land primarily has vowed when you purchase land its primary value is as an appreciating asset as production platform owning land is not at all essential controlling land is what matters and i talked to a lot of young producers who they contact me say hey we bought this hundred twenty acres and we would like to do this and when you unless you have outside well that has allowed you to buy that land free and clear and you are honestly able to treat it as an investment that is the worst starting place that you can be if you bought a piece of land and you're making payments on that land you have no money left to invest in livestock and is the livestock that is actually going to generate the income that ultimately will allow you to invest in land sure and that goes along with some of what i've been seeing that the limiting factor in a lot of the leases that we have is the control issue we we don't have control over how that land gets utilized on some level and so we've already been trying identify some of those leases that are open to giving us a little bit more control is that a deal breaker for you.

"I seem to recall that you've already talked to greg judy and one of your podcast is that correct no he's definitely on the list though okay i was thinking that i'd seen it there you know greg judy most of the land that he operates on is either lease free or very minimal amount because of the landscape improvement that es providing landowners these are some of the other services and objectives that modern grazers need to be thinking about is what can you do for that landowner that joe blow next door isn't going to be able to do for him and that creating a beautiful the store landscape that is something that greg judy has become very good at and it has our damn low cost leases e has land that you know he has been committed to him for his lifetime because of the services provided that's totally different than anything we would have been thinking about twenty thirty forty years ago within this industry that's exactly where my wife and i find ourselves as far as being a young producer looking at the cost of getting into the business and trying to figure out how in the heck we're going to do it and one of the things that i've been thinking is we need to go there armed with photo evidence of what we've been able to accomplish in terms of improving the land with the animals that we are bringing to the the leader is that kind of what you're talking about.
