A thought occurred to me the other day. I imagine when folks think of cattle raisers and ranches, they think of cowboys or vaqueros wearing cowboy hats, boots and spurs, riding horses and roping cattle on big spreads that go on for thousands of acres. They might even think of big mustaches and chewing tobacco. However, that’s not the cattle business I see when I look around. The last two times we worked cattle, I was the only male helping. Our main ranchhand is a female. Some of the cow vets we use are female too. We have bought calves from another small Wagyu producer here in the Hill Country. He’s from India. A lot of folks raising Wagyu cattle are small mom and pop operations. In other words, we look like the country at large. Folks trying to bring a great source of food to their neighbors the best way they know how.
