Warm Season Grass Pasture Walk

Posted June 23rd, 2014 — Filed in Miscellaneous

Warm Season Grass Pasture Walk                            June 28, 2014     3 p.m.-8 p.m.
Join us for a pasture walk at the Hamilton Ranch in south-central Missouri.  We will see not only warm season grasses, but our project of establishing 100+ native species for grazing.  This is our first year of really grazing this diverse native planting since establishment, but we are excited about it and think that it can be better for grazing (some research we have read suggests 230% more production from diversity than the biomass king, switchgrass) and also better for wildlife (a different research project that has one year of research behind it suggests that controlled grazing of diverse natives can be better for quail than the best management that we knew how to do before).  We are also excited about the prospects of soil health with this project. 
If you plan to come, let us know so that we know how much food we need for supper.  Don’t follow computer or GPS derived direction to our place; rather get directions from our website http://www.hamiltonnativeoutpost.com/

Subscription Website

Posted December 27th, 2012 — Filed in Subscription Site Information

July 1, 2009 Bud and I started our Subscription Website.  For $300 per year Bud would answer any questions on Marketing or Livestock Handling as well as writing articles that would be of interest to our subscribers. These Q & A’s were posted in the website.   Since Bud has passed away we are no longer charging an annual fee.  Anyone who was “paid-up” on January 1, 2013 will continue to have access to the site and I will answer any questions that I can.

In the summer of 2012 we sponsored a “Bud Summit.”  This meeting was only for subscribers to the website and their guests.  Tina, our daughter and webmaster audio-taped the session.  These audio clips are on the website.  The clips I posted starting on September 1, 2012 were the complete two-and-a-half-hour talk that Bud gave on “Weaning and/or Receiving New Cattle.”  Many people have told me that this information alone was worth the $300 annual fee.

For a one-time fee of $200 you can have access to the  1,000 plus  postings on the site.  I plan to keep this site open to you for many years

Send your check for $200 along with your e-mail address to me and I will  e-mail  you information on how to access the website.

Testimonial from Dave Pratt

From Ranching for Profit Blog   (2012/11/27)   by Dave Pratt

Bud Williams, known world-wide as the authority on low-stress livestock handling, died Sunday, November 25, from pancreatic cancer. There is a brief message on Bud’s Stockmanship website (www.stockmanship.com) that reads, Thanks to all of you for helping us make things better for the animals.

There’s no doubt that Bud’s concepts and methods made things better for the animals, but they also made things better for the people working those animals. He taught hundreds how to “settle” livestock after shipping. He explained to his students how they could apply cell grazing without fences by “placing” livestock in pastures. He taught how to move herds faster and more calmly without an army of people. He developed and taught (more…)

Thank You for Your Thoughts and Prayers

I’m so proud of the many e-mails I’ve been getting, telling me what a difference Bud has made in their lives, even some from Universities! I was amazed at how fast the news traveled around the world. Bud died on Sunday, by Monday afternoon I’d received messages from Russia, Australia, Canada, South Africa and Germany as well as the many, many I’ve received from the US. These mean a lot to me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Bud’s Gone . . . .

Bud and I have had quite a ride.  Thanks to all of you for helping us make things better for the animals.

New “Archive” List

Posted November 10th, 2012 — Filed in Miscellaneous

I’ve been struggling with a way to make it easier for people to read the first postings on the website without scrolling to the bottom of the page, click on “next page,” scrolling to the bottom again, etc., etc.  Since we have nearly 250 posts on the site it takes quite a while to get back to the first ones.

Tina (our daughter and Webmaster), set up an archive list to easily find postings for a certain month.  You will find this list below  “Contact Us” on the left side of the web page.
