Paying interest….

Well, calving is almost wrapped up, and our bull sale is just around the corner….time flies!! It’s so hard to believe these little babies bouncing around right now will be 1400 lbs. next year this time, and ready and able to go breed cows!!
Bull sale results are starting to trickle in, and sounds like Simmental bulls are in demand again this year. And why wouldn’t they be? Easy calving, fast gaining, with the added bonus of excellent maternal traits, Simmental is definately the breed of the future. Our sale is on Saturday in Veteran-The bulls are semen checked and the truck comes on Thursday to take them to Dryland Cattle Trading Corp. This is by far and away the most stressful week of the year….a whole year’s work-the payoff is just a few hours. I always freak myself out, and actually give myself nightmares about what could possibly go wrong….the quote ‘worry is the interest we pay on trouble before it comes’ often comes to mind….good grief I pay alot of interest!!!
A new year, a new set of challenges. I am sure next year will have all of it’s own challenges, and I will have to pay interest all over again….
But….that’s the bull biz. I love it. I love helping someone find the right bull for them, seeing their excitement when they get the bull bought, and then again when I deliver the bull to their farm. I love meeting new people, and reconnecting with my very loyal customers, most of which we call friends.
So I guess all the interest I pay is really just part of the business-but you think since I am married to a banker, I would get at least a good interest rate???
See you Saturday in Veteran!!
