I take a lot of pride in my job and my
job is keeping cattle healthy I know these cattle they’re here they’re
healthy and they’re comfortable because somebody on this staff has individually
checked them every single day and sometimes twice a day 365 days a
year we’re here at the first line of defense to make sure everybody’s healthy
and comfortable we’re not focused on anything else is just their health
stress it’s a big factor in their health the stress I can limit is how fast I
move through them and how much I disturb their daily routine.
There’s always an old saying that slow is fast and the slower you go through
things the quicker you’re gonna see what you need to see and then you can be out
of there and leave them alone and then go on with their day. There’s a shade
over 17,000 head of cattle in here that we check every single day. There might be
3 or 4 out of 17,000 that day that get doctored. We want to provide a
safe, cost-friendly product just like everybody else. I’d like to think that
if somebody orders a steak somewhere and they enjoy it, that I
had a part in that. I’m probably gonna order that same steak somewhere too.
