High Plains Journal
If you read these columns often, you must have figured out that I spend as much time on the road as I do at home ranching. Since the beginning of 2008, I have spoken to audiences in 28 states and one Canadian province. I am telling you this because the mental struggle I have every day that I have to leave was only worsened by my two weeks at home. Yes, I did actually spend 14 consecutive days at home and it felt awesome. It made it tougher than ever to leave for Florida but I did it anyway. Interestingly, I met up with an old friend I have not seen for four years and suddenly everything seemed to make sense. Derrell Peel, Professor and Extension Livestock Marketing Specialist at Oklahoma State University, was one of the first people I ran into at the American Agriculture Economics Association meeting in Orlando.
