I planned on being free this winter. Couldn't resist it and had to find some cattle to feedDave":7ya0682u said:Goals written down? Heck I don't even write down a grocery list.
The 2017 plan is to sell this place and move. I have had enough of the population, traffic, and constant rain. For this year the cattle will be something simple and easy just because there will be too much other stuff going on. I am thinking broken mouth pairs to eat the hay I have on hand and grass over the summer. Grass starts getting weak about August and I will empty the pastures.
Long term I will be doing the bred heifer operation, or stockers, or short term cows. Some sort of deal where I have times of the year with few or no cattle so I can behave like a retired person. Also this gives me to ability to move from one type to another as the market dictates. I won't be dong a cow/calf operation.

Says he's not making the money like we did when we first started out, so mine is getting him paid. Heck, I ran everything and fronted most of the money from the start so I'm anxious to get this done.
