I miss the young men and women that are the future of the cow business. DMF is a prime example of someone who has more cattle knowledge and was willing to share and help anyone out. A couple of my neighbors quit CT and it's a shame they both have forgotten more than most will know. And I really miss Chippy, Chucky, and Milkmaid.

Milkmaid probably has all the cattle she can take in a day. Besides, if she gave advice on the board some moron would undoubtedly argue with her.

Chippy is active on a chicken page at FB. We don't talk directly but it sounds like she is well.

Cypressfarms. New Roads, Louisiana

Last I remember about Cypressfarms, someone who had visited the area said they were under water.. About this time last year I think.
I don't think I've seen Cypress post since then.


I was across the river from him. At my sister's place in Saint Francisville. We received 23 inches of rain there in two and a half days. We could not come home the way we went in thru New Roads. We had to go up thru Mississippi to I 20. Cypress finally replied/said he was okay. I don't know if I have heard from him since.

What happened to DMF? I really miss his input. A lot of knowledge there. Anybody know how Bez is? Glad to hear a lot of these guys are good.

There was a very nice (pretty young I think) woman (maybe actual name Wanda but wasn't screen name) who had cancer and was raising her niece and nephew after their parent died. Sounded like she was getting a raw deal from Lady Luck. I never met her but wonder how she's doing from time to time and send her good thoughts through the universe.

What happened to Big Bull if anyone knows?

What happened to Hillsdown? I think she was sick? I always liked her dog avatar. She use to post some good looking food if I recall.

Yes, that's who I was referencing. She had been dealt a rough hand, hope she is ok.

Seems like there are several who have left and go to a FB cattle page or double dip at CT and FB cattle page... I don't FB, is there one cattle page that they're all on, or many different? Forgive my ignorance in advance please.
