The more one understands about resources critical to ranching the more likely one is to survive hard times. There are many distractions in the range livestock industry from day to day activities to technology overloads at educational meetings. As you sift through your experiences and observations do you ever ask the question, "What will I teach the next generation of management to improve their chances of success?".
