DairyCast update for Febuary 9, 2010, Tips on Newborn Calf Care When Difficult Problems Arise

Our recent trip to San Antonio, Texas for the Cattle Industry Annual Convention was extremely valuable. I truly enjoyed the chance to catch up with many of you and gain your perspectives. If we weren’t able to connect in Texas, drop me a message to let me know what’s on your mind and how we can help.

I am excited to bring you numerous conversations from the industry leading event. I want to begin by sharing the interesting perspective of Chris Gardner. Chris is the author of The Pursuit of Happyness and was portrayed by Will Smith in the blockbuster movie by the same title. He shares his eventful story from a life of homelessness on the streets to owning his own multi-million dollar brokerage firm. Join this powerful and motivational conversation!

Link to blogTaking one day a month to "have fun" Spending at least one day off a month, or more is one of the most important items in operating a successful farm business, according to Albert Nunes, a CPA with Genske, Mulder & Co. from Modesto, Calif., who made a presentation on financial strategies to get through tough times during the Indiana Livestock, Grain and Forage Forum last week. In terms of family life, reducing the stress load and keeping a positive attitude, a vacation day or a bit of time off once a month can be tremendously beneficial, he explained.
