We could not be more pleased with how our first ever live Lock and Load Sale went and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our consigners, talented young people behind the scenes, and most importantly our loyal and new customers! We look forward to finishing out 2019 with a bang and excited about what 2020 holds for us!
This is always a favorite time of the year, when we are able to spend an entire weekend looking at some high-quality cattle! While you’re out traveling and shopping today, be sure to stop by Abernathy TX to take a look at this group. To say we are proud, would be an understatement.

We love this article and think it speaks so true for those of us raised in this industry! Such a blessing!
A Father's Explanation of Why He Had Livestock for His Daughter.
My daughter turned sixteen years old today; which is a milestone for most people. Besides looking at baby photos and childhood trinkets with her, I took time to reflect on the young woman my daughter had become and the choices she would face in the future.
As I looked at her I could see the athlete she was, and determined woman she would soon be. I started thinking about some of the girls we knew in our town who were already pregnant, pierced in several places, hair every color under the sun, drop outs, drug addicts and on the fast track to no-where, seeking surface identities because they had no inner self esteem. The parents of these same girls have asked me why I "waste" the money on stock so my daughter can show. I'm told she will grow out of it, lose interest, discover boys and all kinds of things that try to pin the current generation' s "slacker" label on my child. I don't think it will happen, I think she will love and have livestock all her life.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she has compassion. She knows that we must take special care of the very young and the very old. We must make sure those without voices to speak of their pain are still cared for.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she learned responsibility for others than herself. She learned that regardless of the weather you must still care for those you have the stewardship of. There are no "days off" just because you don't feel like being an owner that day. She learned that for every hour of fun you have there are days of hard work you must do first.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she learned not to be afraid of getting dirty and that appearances don't matter to most of the breathing things in the world we live in. Livestock do not care about designer clothes, jewelry, pretty hairdos or anything else we put on our bodies to try to impress others. What an animal cares about are your abilities to work within his natural world, he doesn't care if you're wearing $150.00 jeans while you do it.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she understands the value of money. Every dollar can be translated into bales of hay, bags of feed or vet visits. Purchasing non-necessities during lean times can mean the difference between feed and good care, or neglect and starvation. She has learned to judge the level of her care against the care she sees provided by others and to make sure her standards never lower, and only increase as her knowledge grows.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she has learned to learn on her own. She has had teachers that cannot speak, nor write, nor communicate beyond body language and reactions. She has had to learn to "read" her surroundings for both safe and unsafe objects, to look for hazards where others might only see a pretty meadow. She has learned to judge people as she judges her stock. She looks beyond appearances and trappings to see what is within.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she has learned sportsmanship to a high degree. Everyone that competes fairly is a winner. Trophies and ribbons may prove someone a winner, but they do not prove someone is a stockman. She has also learned that some people will do anything to win, regard-less of who it hurts. She knows that those who will cheat in the show ring will also cheat in every other aspect of their life and are not to be trusted.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she has self-esteem and an engaging personality. She can talk to anyone she meets with confidence, because she has to express herself to her animals with more than words. She knows the satisfaction of controlling and teaching a 1000 pound animal that will yield willingly to her gentle touch and ignore the more forceful and inept handling of those stronger than she is. She holds herself with poise and professionalism in the company of those far older than herself.
Because my daughter grew up with livestock she has learned to plan ahead. She knows that choices made today can effect what happens five years down the road. She knows that you cannot care for and protect your investments without savings to fall back on. She knows the value of land and buildings. And that caring for your vehicle can mean the difference between easy travel or being stranded on the side of the road with a full trailer on a hot day.
When I look at what she has learned and what it will help her become, I can honestly say that I haven't "wasted" a penny on providing her with livestock. I only wish that all children had the same opportunities to learn these lessons from showing and raising animals before setting out on the road to adulthood.
