Customer Appreciation Day

With unprecedentedly warm weather for December, we decided to have a customer appreciation get together at the locker. There is much to be thankful for this year, cows, friends, hope... The list goes on.

Being spur of the moment, we got word out to the boys as quick as we could. The loyalist members of the herd dropped what they were doing and came right over. 

We had some nice hors d'oeuvres and drinks available. 

This was an opportunity to look back at the blessings of 2023. The cows really finished nice on this year's grass. 

The steaks were rich red with nice marbling. 

There were relatively minimal injuries throughout the year. Mainly because of our strict safety protocols. 

Hamburgering always takes the most work, but it's worth it. 

Fortunately we had good help. 

Done. All the cows are in the freezer. 

Except for one. Mom and Andy are doing well. This little girl is growing up and turning red. It'll be fun to see what 2024 holds for these two. 

Good stuff. I'm thankful for the opportunity to continue ranching. It fuels my priesthood. Time and time again it has proved true this year: if you want to be a good father, you have to be a good son.
