Buying Livestock? Remember. . .

Two Simple Rules to remember for Spring Livestock purchases. . .

the biggest time of the year is now for buying additions to your herds or for starting your flock or herd. . .

#1. Spare no Expense for high quality (read: conformationally correct), Registered, Healthy (which usually means genetic and disease testing) Animals.

#2. Really, REALLY like and believe in the goals of the people you buy from as they will or should guide you along your path to success for that breed you have.

YOU will NEVER regret it if you follow these two simple recommendations.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."

- George Washington
