Thoughts from Kelln

Wind in my hair

Posted on May 29, 2020

I’ve never owned a Harley or any other big bike for that matter.  Decades ago, I had almost pulled the trigger on a ’91 Fatboy that was in El Paso.  Instead, my brother Jake and I bought a set of Hereford cow/calf pairs.  Good decision as those rips were profitable.  Nonetheless, I still kind of wish that I would have bought the bike. Tuesday evening found me responding to a book face post.  Halie Schovanec

Holiday

Posted on May 26, 2020

Yes, there was a holiday yesterday.  Memorial Day.  I hope all of you took a moment to ponder over those that have given all for this country. It was also a goat holiday for me.  It was the first day in a while that I did NOT drench a doe goat.  The doe that I induced 14 days ahead of her due date had babies.  Yes, there were triplets and yes, two of them are

Just Stuff

Posted on May 22, 2020

This post is probably going to be horrible.   Just a bunch of stuff to give old turds in Nebraska something to read.  Here we go. Since I first found my footing in Stillwater back in 1989, I have been a fan of the radio station the KATT, Rock 100.5.  I have fond memories of working in the OSU meat lab during the summer months with the KATT blaring from the radio.  A lot of

Hauling

Posted on May 20, 2020

I’ve hauled a lot of different things over the past decades.  I’ve hauled ass before.  And I have the driving awards from numerous states to prove that I was hauling ass. I’ve also literally hauled ass before.  We have a really fun story of hauling an ass for Grandma Katherine Urban.  Somewhere, I have a picture of that donkey delivery. I’ve delivered a puppy from Shattuck to Phoenix which in turn headed to Tucson and

Some stuff that I don’t like

Posted on May 19, 2020

plus some stuff that I do like.   The past several days have involved doe goats, drenching goats and farming.   I don’t like any of those items.  I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I hate a female goat.   Hate em.  But, I can’t make bucks and wethers without them. Over the years, we have not had very many toxemia cases.  Maybe 1 or 2 per year.  But now, for

Today’s current climate lends one to read, look at, view and/or listen to a variety of different forms of media.  I don’t want to watch nor read any given “news” source.  This is not a new deal with me.  I started this practice in 2008.  If you need/want to know why–call me.  This was the point that I realized that there was very little “news” reporting happening and mostly just “copying and pasting”.  If the

Common ?

Posted on May 13, 2020

Probably the most commonly asked question that I get really doesn’t have much to do with goats? “So, how much longer you teaching ag?”   Valid question.  Honest answer–I do not know.  Truly don’t.   I could walk away tomorrow.  I have fulfilled any and all obligations that I ever had to anybody.  I signed on for 1 year in 2014 because it was my alma-mater and my son was going to be in the

Where to start?

Posted on May 11, 2020

I was reminded today, when rolling up electric fence with a gas powered fence roller………………………….. always keep the 2 wires separated.  Damn!!  I was glad nobody was around to see that tangled up POS!!!   And I had nobody to blame but myself.  Yeah, you, Dad.   I hope you are getting a laugh reading this crap!! I made a road trip on Saturday.  A little over 750 miles round trip to look at some
