Real talk...life is busy. We ALL have a million things going on, and sometimes that means last minute pulling all the pieces together, even for a sale or event that we have had scheduled for a while.

We get it. In fact, we live it far too often. And because of that, we will do whatever we can to make sure that your marketing materials (catalogs, ads, logos, pictures, you name it) are ready in a timely manner..we've gotten good at multi-tasking.

Let us know how we can help you stay on schedule and be successful!

They say that if you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life.

That's probably not 100% true...even if you love what you do, some days its just work, but for us, being able to work with great ag organizations and people like those in Virginia Cattlemen's Association is always a pleasure!

We're excited to be in Wyers Cave today for the VCA Annual Meeting...the guest speakers will be streamed via Facebook Live on the VCA page, come join us!

Goal: Have more successes than mistakes...

Own your mistakes. Celebrate your successes.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
You’re going to make mistakes, sometimes big ones. And owning them – it’s going to suck and be uncomfortable. Heck, it may even hurt a little. But, do it anyway. Own your mistakes anyway. Growth doesn’t come without a little discomfort.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
And besides, owning those mistakes makes every success that much sweeter.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Speaking of successes...
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Own those too. I mean, be humble when you have a win, but do not be afraid to be satisfied and happy with a job well done.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Now tell me about a recent success πŸ‘‡πŸΌ, big or small, so we can celebrate it together!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

Some investments are made with an eye towards the bottom line, and some are made with an eye towards the future (and not necessarily the cow one).

A few rare ones can sometimes work towards both...

The passion and love this heifer has inspired in these boys had paid dividends back on our investment already that make her far more valuable than we could have ever hoped.

VAA GIFT Sale Lot 41 - Silverado Blossom 704E

It has been a crazy year, no doubt, which just makes up appreciate our clients, and friends, even more!

We purchased some County O semen in a benefit auction last year to use on our Simmental donor. After flushing her, we bred her back the same way...

This sexy little guy is the natural calf out of that mating...and he makes us really excited to see what the embryo calves look like when they start hitting the ground this fall!

As we all adjust to a (temporarily) different world, we have a choice - to let it defeat us, or to take advantage of the opportunities this time provides.

We're enjoying the opportunity to spend some extra time giving the kids some one on one time with their heifers, while still supporting and helping our customers as they adjust their spring sales and how they are marketing their cattle to fit with current requirements.

We've all been dealing with a lot of unexpected changes over the last couple of weeks...but one thing hasn't changed - the hard work and dedication of farmers and ranchers who put in long hours to continue to provide food and fiber for us all.

We're proud to be a part of, and to help support, these hardworking men and women.

Anyone else feel like the world has gone a little crazy this last week?

You're not alone. Our home school/social distancing today had the littlest farm hands working with their heifers and the bigger farm hands catching up on some clipping.

On a different note, with everything going on, some of our client's sales scheduled for the upcoming weeks may have some changes, and we'll do our best to share those with you as we know.

As of right now the Virginia Beef Expo sales are scheduled to go on, and the Miller-Gustin Spring Bull Sale is moving forward with Cowbuyer available for those who would prefer to stay home and bid online.
