You meet the nicest, most honest folks (usually) when you sell cattle. Tim from Raymond, Washington definitely met that critera. He arrived on Friday afternoon to pick up Beau and Brie, the young heifer he'd gotten from Ted and Susan in Sutherlin. Caylin and Susan had hauled her up on Thursday so we could do a single brand inspection instead of two separate ones and save Tim several hours extra driving on Saturday. Brie is a Roar granddaughter, so it was nice to get a chance to see her.
We loaded the dynamic duo up around noon on Saturday and they were off to their new digs and new herdmates from Diamond G Murray Greys in Vader, Washington. Tim is just getting into the all natural, grass fed and finished, raised on the ranch from start to finish beef market up in his neck of Washington, and I think he's going to do very, very well. He knows his market, knows what it will take to make and sustain it and is willing to do what it takes to establish himself.
The future just keeps looking better and better for grass fed and finished Murray Grey beef producers!
Brie gets a nose out to say goodbye
So does Beau
Just like two kids in the backseat of the station wagon
