You really think rich kids with business degrees would be dumb enough to get into cattle?
you might be surprised.
I'd be beyond surprised, I'd be stunned. If he had said with an Ag degree I might understand it.
Should have majored in tax accounting.

I just got a business degree (non ag) last winter and have a good job in town and I'm doin my best to get away from both and chase my cow/pecan dream. Grew up in the suburbs and moved to what was my Grandfather's ranch several years ago. Nowhere else I'd rather be now, I just have to figure out how to make it pencil out.

You're generally right I'm sure, but there are some surprises out there.

I wish you nothing but the utmost success in your venture. It'll be a tough row to hoe but if you're determined you can make it work.

I found a little trick on Twitter to help #faircattlemarkets trend. Go to twitter, search #faircattlemarkets and retweet a bunch of tweets others made.
