What does that stand for?  A lot of goat people probably don’t know what this acronym stands for.  It is Coronavirus Food Act Program that is administered through the Farm Service Agency.  Livestock producers can go to their FSA office, pick up a form and fill out the # of head of livestock.  The government then sends the producer some $s.  This program is good for cattle, sheep and hogs.  Wait!  What?  No goats. No.

Okie State athletics

Posted on July 02, 2020

Spring & early summer are usually strong months for OSU athletics–golf, softball and baseball.  This year, no college world series for either sex and no golf tournaments.  However, the pokes have maintained a strong presence on the worldwide leader of sports–espn.  To start with, Gundy made some remarks early on during the covid deal. Then his t-shirt blew up the internet and this gave a bunch of the talking heads something to talk about. Recently,

2nd hated Plant

Posted on June 30, 2020

In NW OK, the sandbur is the most hated piece of vegetation.  However, in the year 2020, another plant is making a run for the most hated.   Tribulus terrestris.  It is commonly called “puncture vine”  but it is also known as “goat head”.  If you’ve ever dealt with the seed of this plant, then you know why it is called a goat head.  The two horns and long narrow face resemble a goat.  Specifically,

Little Bit Off Today

Posted on June 25, 2020

There is a new song that has been occupying parts of my skull for the past week.  I am not a big fan of the band Five Finger Death Punch.  However, their newest release seems to fit my life today and for that matter, this tune could very well be the theme song for 2020.  A little bit off. I started this day in fine fashion.  Did chores, cleaned up and headed to Woodward.  I

Screwed up!!

Posted on June 22, 2020

Our politics, society, economics, well hell, just about everything in the U S of A is screwed up right now.  I mean it’s as screwed up as Lt. Frank Drebin umpiring a baseball game. This deal in Atlanta is way messed up.  How about this A O C chick in New York?  Shouldn’t a sitting congressional leader have something better to do than trolling teens on tik tok? I came through Tulsa on Saturday afternoon.

Skin in the Game

Posted on June 20, 2020

Over the years, I have been asked numerous times, how come the doe shows aren’t supported like the wether shows at Tulsa & OYE.  It is a very simple answer.  The doe showers don’t do crap to help support the shows.  They have no skin in the game.  Wait?  What? For starters, over the past 15 years, Tammy and I have worked and/or helped with numerous fund raisers for a variety of shows across Oklahoma.

Thoughts…just random thoughts

Posted on June 17, 2020

“Excuse me while I whip this out!” I came into the house to eat.  Turned on the tube and one of the Hobbit movies were airing….again.  I love those movies.  The books were bad ass as well.  My question as I watched the battle parts…again….If the Dwarves & Elves are so wicked in battle, how come they are always outnumbered? We hauled several hundred bales of very clean, bright wheat straw this weekend.  This evening,

Retarded

Posted on June 16, 2020

Would somebody please just unplug all of the news channels?!  My goodness, we are retarded.  Socially and mentally.  Gundy wears a tshirt fishing.  One of his players tweets a comment.  Now, it’s all over tv, social media, etc. Here’s how much I knew about it.  Gundy goes fishing and then wears a tshirt with OAN on it.  I thought to myself, “Cool.  I didn’t know that the Oklahoma Ag Network had tshirts. What’s wrong with

Neighbors

Posted on June 14, 2020

I’ve pounded the keyboard before about good neighbors.  Everybody needs and should have good neighbors.  I have the BEST neighbors.  Johnny File and John Rakestraw are two of the……Haaahhh!! Pick your terms. They check all of the boxes.  The File family are wicked good neighbors. The other night, I was taking a gator ride and watching the Torrance crew cut wheat on some File land close to the house.  Stripper header on some really good

20/20 vision

Posted on June 11, 2020

I’ve had a right eye that got damaged back in the 80s.  I haven’t had 20/20 vision for decades.  And now that 2020 is upon us, I don’t think that I want 2020 vision.  I can’t believe some of what I am seeing, nor some 0f what we can’t see.  It is hard to believe that some are this stupid.  Yet, others are letting these dumb bastards lead the way.  What?  None of this makes
