Steve Cote’s New Stockmanship Book

Posted June 26th, 2019 — Filed in Miscellaneous, Stockmanship

The new book, Manual of Stockmanship, is now offered for sale. It has many more elements of
stockmanship and grazing lands (and riparian area) management for the range rider over the
2004-150 page book. The 2004 book has undergone substantial expansion to include a great
many more details and helpful diagrams about working stock in facilities, sorting, weaning,
handling pairs, dealing with sensitive or aggressive stock, loading and dealing with handling
issues common to all producers. It also includes sections on bison and grazing and soils that
are remarkable accounts that we can use to enhance, protect or restore our grazing lands. This
book, while an exhaustive manual for range riders, has very useful information for all
operations including feedlots, dairies and smaller operations.
For information on the book, please contact Steve or Susan Cote at 731-336-1167, text or

Upcoming Stockmanship School-for riders
Whit Hibbard and myself will be instructing a 4 day hands-on school for range riders starting
the end of September, 2019 at the Cottonwood Ranch in the O’Neil Basin in Nevada. I’ve held
many schools at this ranch before and it’s a great place to learn stockmanship. The school
admission prioritizes people that graze public lands and the teaching emphasis is on handling
herds for enhancing riparian areas and upland range resources. I will be announcing the details
on my website (cotestockmanship.com) and Facebook (Steve Cote) soon.

Today, June 17, we are shipping out the first books! If you have already ordered your copy, it will ship now. If you haven’t ordered yet and want to, click here for ordering information.

Richard and Tina came over to help with the first shipping (Tina took photos and wrote this web post).

Announcing our new Book, “Proper Livestock Marketing 101”

Posted June 16th, 2019 — Filed in Marketing

In the process of collecting material for a book about Mom and Dad’s life, I (Tina) realized the depth and importance of material on the subscription website written by Dad about livestock marketing. I had read them all at the time Dad wrote them, but hadn’t re-read them recently. Also, the process of reading through the posts on the website starting with the earliest ones is a little tedious (at best).

In talking with Mom and Richard, we tried to think of the best way to distribute Dad’s writings about marketing. We decided to transcribe the marketing DVD for the introduction to Dad’s marketing techniques and then include almost all of the posts from the website on the topic of marketing in a form that’s much easier to read and digest. You can even make notes on the margins!

The name we chose for the book, “Proper Livestock Marketing,” is taken from Dad’s repeated reference to the word “proper” to describe his marketing thought process just as he used it to describe his stockmanship.

Along with the 340 page, spiral bound book, buyers will receive a thumb drive with all the livestock marketing excel files Richard and I have developed along with access to the Hand ‘n Hand website for updates and videos explaining their use (a $225 value!). We have also designed and included some paper worksheets for those who want or need to do the work by hand.

Lifetime access to the stockmanship.com/subscription website will also come with the book.
