About the author

I graduated from West Virginia University in 2012 with a degree in livestock management, and a minor in agribusiness. While at WVU, I won a statewide entrepreneurship competition with a patentable device I designed for video-assisted cattle artificial insemination. I then spent six months interning for grazing expert Greg Judy in Missouri. Now I run Rhinestone Cattle Consulting, helping new and experienced farmers build profitable mob grazing beef operations. I offer artificial insemination, electric fence building and graphic design services too. I'll travel anywhere in the 48 states for on-farm consulting and speaking at conferences.

    When a cow is focusing on you, she has completely forgotten about whatever it is you want her to do. She is only thinking about how to escape from the threat that is you.

    BINGO

    A great article Meg. I love your courage to try & your ingenuity to solve issues with the resources available! As you have demonstrated, panels & poly wire are effective tools to build handling facilities on rented land. For me, spending the money on free standing panels really reduced my stress. It would have been nice to have the money for them when we first started out!
