I always find it interesting to see and hear how other people’s farms and ranches work. There’s always something to learn from other people’s operations. Over the last week, I’ve been to help 3 different producers with some fall work. Each one different, all doing what they see best to be successful sheep producers. Each time I go to another farm, I come away with a few hints that may improve what we are doing. It also makes me appreciate what we have done and the animals we have that are doing well in our system and helping us to be successful. Sometimes you have to step away from your own work to see the positives in what you’re doing and appreciate all the help along the way. And to feel more confident about decisions that you’re making and that striving for goals centered around your values leads to good results, even if sometimes the road is rocky.
