This whole situation makes me heart sick. I don’t share this video to incite debate or solicit opinion.
I share for a bit of perspective in a very complex time, especially when so many of us are far removed from food and by-product production.
I share because people are hurting in so many ways; there are people in our business who will not survive the pain of senselessly euthanizing the animals they’ve poured their hearts and minds in to raising, casualties of a marketing and political game they’d rather not play.
I share because I look at a yard of fat cattle, yards of feeder cattle, pastures of newborn calves and can’t help but wonder if we have what it takes to think outside the norm, hustle where we can, and survive what we can’t control.
A little kindness and a lot of grace can go a long way in times like these. #graceNgratitude #WeAreRanchers
