Greetings from Kansas

Post by Adam Freeman » Fri Feb 21, 2020 4:43 pm

Good afternoon. My name is Adam Freeman and my wife and I are getting ready to get into the cattle business. I am currently in the process of retiring from the Army and after serving 21 years want to raise my family on a small farm just like I was. We have 3 girls and a little boy who are all excited to raise animals. We are looking at purchasing 160 acres of clean pasture and running about 20 pairs on it. the kiddos also want to have a couple pigs and some chickens as well. The girls are about to get into 4h and love being at grandma's farm helping her as well.

We are planning on running Black Angus and trying to drop calves in Feb and sell in Oct or Nov. I have helped my mother over the years with her farm but don't have as much hands on experience as I would like. I was excited to find this forum where I can get answers to questions as well as contribute if possible. Thank you for letting us join and we will keep you up to date as we progress in this new adventure.

Hello Adam and family!! 👋🏽 Best way to do it is just do it... live and learn. 😁😅 I love your plan. Being my husband and I have a couple kids a farm few cows, few chickens, few miniature horses.... the kids will want a few pigs, goats, rabbits, and sheep. Funny part is I just wanted a dog. 😅🤣👏🏽👊🏽🙌🏾 I wouldn't change it for anything. 😍
