These videos are from a Stockmanship and Stewardship presentation I did at the Joplin Regional Stockyards on September 12th. Mark Harman and the rest of the crew are amazing at promoting the beef industry. I learn so much about marketing cattle and how to treat a customer every time I go there. Eric Grant of the American Angus Association filmed and put these clips together. I am real proud of the way it came together. I hope it has some content that will help with you working with cattle.
This video shares some of the sights from the 2013 Mississippi Cattlemen’s College. Curt put on several Stockmanship and Stewardship demonstrations as part of this year’s event for the MS Cattlemen’s Association on August 27-30.
If read the post from yesterday, you know that Curt was recently on The Angus Report, along with fellow stockmanship expert, Ron Gill of Texas. The episode aired on RFD-TV this morning at 7:30am CST. Luckily for those of you that don’t have RFD-TV, the episodes are also available on YouTube for you to view! You’ll find all the videos from the episode (Parts 1-4) embedded in this post below!
The bulls in this video had been pastured daily on alfalfa/grass in grazing cells for 4 hours each afternoon. In this instance, we had brought them out of the paddock with the dogs, came down the county road (in exercise mode) about 1/2 mile. The dogs were getting warm, and had done a real nice job bringing the bulls, so Rial and I moved them in to the feedlot horseback. The horse Rial was riding only had a few rides so it was real nice work for him. We had lots of fun working with these bulls. They were real snorty when we got them and by this time, we could touch most of them on the hip when horseback. At first we had some fighting, when moving them, but as they learned how to drive and take pressure it did not happen very often. If it did we could get them to stop by putting quite a bit of pressure on.
