I've only been a part of this forum for a year, and there are several regular posters that I was surprised to find out they were of the opposite sex than what I had imagined, and several I'm sure are of a younger or older age than I imagined. So if you want to participate, I'm just curious about the demographics here. I'll start................
I'm a 42 year old Dad of 6 great children. I became a Granddad in April. Been around cattle all my life, but just started on my own 5 years ago, and constantly kick myself in the arse for not asking more questions of my Granddad when he was able to answer them. Thats me. What about you?

I like bacon, good beef, biscuits, hate doctors, snakes, and barbers..
Been with cows about 1/2 my life--chased women the other 1/2 then messed around and actually caught one that would have me.

We have one of those--a cane press--here. It's a 'Columbus' 2 mule variety tho we've never used--my brother is wanting to raise some ribbon cane and make some syrup before we get too old.
