Cattle Industry Convention 2015 PICTURES


Social Steaks

Today has been a whirlwind of an adventure.  I am rooming with two amazing ladies, whom I look up to for leadership and advice, Royalee Rhoads from MN and Bea Jai from AL.  We got up at 6 am this morning and kicked off our first meeting at 8.   It is now 7 pm and we are just winding down and contemplating going to supper!!

  I was getting out of the shower a while back and felt how rough my legs were.  I thought it was from the winter and being dried out.  My sister makes this lotion which works miracles and i thought it would fix my bump on my legs, my rough elbows and the bumps on the backs of my arms.  It didn't.  At that same time I started fixing myself a New York strip or a rib eye steak every day for lunch and dinner.  I did this for a week but never really paid my bumps any attention until I felt my legs and they were as smooth as …
