I really don’t give a rat’s rear about the nfl lawsuit that involves nike’s new poster female dog.  I did not like him when he took a knee and my opinions have not changed.  I have not watched an nfl game in two years.  My life has not changed as a result. Now, they are suing and using the term collusion.  Good luck with that.  I’m not a lawyer but I have watched a lot

Couldn’t play one properly if my life depended on it.  But, I love the sound of a well played guitar.  Plugged or unplugged–don’t care. My mother tried to teach me music.  “If you learn to play the piano, then you can learn to play any instrument.”  Much like the classic Merle Haggard song “Mama Tried”.  She dang sure did.  Tried she did, on numerous levels.  Music, religion, etc.  I had the chance to learn how

Oh?! Yeah.

Oh, we did have a sale this past Labor Day.  Good goats brought good money.  Pullan sold goats for good money.  I took a pair and they sold about like they should have.  It wasn’t the Best of the West sales of former years.  From an ag teacher perspective, I got some very good goats bought and stayed well within budget.  From the seller side of things…hunh?!   But….the food was excellent.  All of the

We got a little more rain.  Others got a lot more.  I need a little more time in the day.

I have experienced some real difficulties in life.  I mean serious stuff.  Ppfft!!  Not really. I mean, I truly do not know what it is like to be hungry.  Sure, I’ve been hungry but not starving. I truly do not know what it is like to grow up in a bad home life.  I’ve seen some bad stuff.  But it wasn’t where I grew up.  My kids, my wife and myself grew up with people

I got a phone call from my buddy Schoovy.  Best that I have heard him sound in a while.  Although, there is still some road to travel, things are looking up for Mama Schoovy.  Power of prayer and positivity.  Keep it up. He was bragging on family and friends.  Very upbeat.  I like it.  He has also had time to study some online sales.  SCARY! I thoroughly enjoy showing a grand animal.  Always have, always

And additives are included in this topic. Regardless of species, I have long subscribed to a very simple doctrine of livestock feeding. “It isn’t what you feed but how you feed it.”   Fresh water, timely feedings, proper management and quality feed stuffs.  And yes, in that order. 1–If they don’t have a good drink, the chemical reactions can’t occur. 2–If their gut and/or metabolism gets thrown out of whack–things aren’t smooth. 3–Keep an animal

Like the energizer bunny, this dead goat is still going–  Rumour Has It.  He’s been dead over two years now.  But those genetics are still going. At the recently concluded Iowa State Fair, the grand 4-H doe was raised and shown by Goretska’s.  This doe was sired by Truth Be Told.  This is the first kid crop out of this Rumour son that they bought from us in our ’17 online buck sale. The grand

I like that story

No, I didn’t get my part.  Yes, it is supposed to be here on Monday afternoon.  YOU DANG SKIPPY that I got my donuts.  I bought a dozen fresh Daylight donuts.  I ate one.  Let some seniors eat some of them.  Then we had a bit of economics lesson on the last three.  It is called supply and demand.  I sold the first one for $3.  Then the next two brought a dollar each.  I
