So, according to book face, THE OG of livestock transportation, Mr. Bob May AND the OG of online goat marketing, Mr. Tommy Milligan share a birthday!!  I do not think that they are related.  However, my question is this……. do they have the same hair stylist?   Recently, I had the smelly kid talk with 23 8th grade boys.  We have them in class 1st hour (Thank GOD! Later in the day would be brutal!)

Back in the late 80s, a crew of us would load up, head to Enid and make the 2 hour trek to Oakwood Mall.  We could eat really good chinese food at the Combo King, buy some new shoes, catch a movie and then grab a double doozie cookie.  It would be a complete day. Malls across the country continued to prosper through the 90s.  But then, slowly they began to have empty storefronts. In

I feel that I should write something but just not sure what?!   I do think that covid is a real deal.  I do think that it has been over-hyped.  I am scared for those that have to fight it and don’t have the immune system to fend it off. Personally, as a person that is on the front lines of dealing with the general public, I am not afraid for my health.  In all

This could be a long post….but it won’t be. There are always things going on, right in front of you, on your screen.  Things are what they are, but yet….dang, I should have seen that one coming.  I would like to write about the behind the scenes, here or there, but I can’t, or won’t.  However, I did sit on a 5 gallon bucket full of potential product.  Oh, the fun! I got stung by

This stuff is not an opinion….it is fact! In 1920, there were roughly 2 billion people on this planet.  Of those 2 billion people, roughly 20+% were full-time farmers/ranchers.  Almost 80% of the population were hungry and/or living in poverty. In 2020, there is over 7.6 billion people on this planet.  In the United States, less than 2% of the population are full-time farmers/ranchers.  There are MORE people in prisons than there are full-time farmers/ranchers.

I did NO physical labor between the hours of 7 am and 5 pm.  Yet, my donkey was dragging.  Today was the first day of school.  THANK YOU LORD!!   It is amazin’ how tiring it is to stand in front of people all day, and talk.  It will flat wear you out.  It was a good day but I am going to have to work myself into standing and talking shape.  Fortunately, I am

So many questions regarding what to feed.  What is the best feed?  What additives do we need?  Which additive will do this and what will do that?  What drench do we need? It isn’t what you feed, it’s how you feed it.  Make sure you use a high quality feed (regardless of brand).  There are numerous different brands of feed that will work.  The feed needs to have a proper calcium to phosphorous ratio and

The best oatmeal raisin cookies come from…..RUSM?…..Subway.  Yes, a sandwich shop.  Chewy, yet not overpowering with cinnamon. A raisin in every bite.  Dang good cookies! I knew that the buck collection a couple of weeks ago went way good.  Took 3 bucks, all 3 bucks jumped 3 times each and everything looked good.  Then, I got the bill.  A couple of hundred straws of juice adds up quick!   I guess I won’t have to

This may very well be the final Kelln Livestock blog.  This is just an analogy but it seems to fit current times.   Let me begin by giving a brief description of my farming operation.  Most of Ellis County, OK should have never been broke out and farmed.  A lot of it was put into CRP back in the 80’s.  Some of it is productive when it has moisture.  There is some irrigated ground (norm

Let me tell you about some crap that I find completely undesirable.  These dang tv commercials that are sponsored by lawyers with open class action lawsuits.  I don’t like these commercials.  They make me think that these lawyers are just trolling, with no real bait, just trying to snag another client or three. Mesothelioma, asbestos from naval yards, roundup weed killer exposure, the boy scouts abuse, etc.  This crap is just one more thing that
