I was driving in Colorado and saw this mix and thought it was worth a picture.
The bunch contained horses, bison, Brahman, longhorns, Angus and a jackass. They were all content and seemed to be tolerating each other nicely. I don’t know if they had been worked with or negotiated with to get along this good or not.
All the nations in the world should take this as an example of different needs getting along. It wouldn’t hurt if whites, blacks, Indians, Latinos, and all other races of people could get along as good as grazing animals. NCBA, R-CALF, and the US Cattlemens should all quit acting like a bunch of young bulls on the fight and try to work together for the herd (we are even for the same species). Even the Jackass was getting along in this bunch.

Two upcoming Stockmanship and Stewardship events on July 1st (8am to 2pm MST) at the Cargill-Yuma Feedyard in Yuma, CO and on July 2nd (10am to 4pm MST) at the Magnum Feedyard in Wiggins, CO will give livestock producers in Colorado how low stress livestock handling can enhance cattle operation profitability and improve animal welfare.
Topics will include management of receiving and shipping cattle, pen riding, general cattle handling, (lunch provided) and an afternoon chute-side management of processing cattle.
Curt Pate will share his ideas and knowledge with interested people by helping them to hone their skills as cattlemen and women to improve their stockmanship and stewardship.
To RSVP, Contact Travis Hoffman, Colorado BQA Coordinator by June 24.
