Facebook Live!

Despite their remarks that summer has gone too fast, my girls head back to school on Wednesday. They’ve been on vacation for three months, but I have to admit that it seems like last week when we transitioned from school to the swim team season.

The warm summer months were filled with:

  • Fitness training for both swimming and Cross Country
  • Shooting thousands of baskets to prepare for basketball
  • Taking care of our grass cattle and pasture ground
  • And doing other farm chores….
  • And welcoming a new puppy into our family!


I’m not sure exactly what the girls had in mind for their last day of summer, but their Mama decided to finish out the vacation with a Facebook Live broadcast from Roberts Cattle Company to visit our cattle at the feed yard.

I tell my girls that the road to excellence isn’t comfortable, so it seems appropriate to finish up the summer pushing my comfortable limits and forging into new territory. I’ve never done a Facebook Live broadcast, but I think that it is a great way to increase transparency and allow folks to have insight into life at a cattle feed yard.

I would ask that you all support me in this new endeavor by both sharing the news of the broadcast and getting online to participate in it. It will be at 7:30am central time tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. Just hop onto Facebook to the FeedYard Foodie page to watch. I plan for the broadcast to go approximately 10 minutes, so you can hang out with Karyn, Megan and I (along with our bovines) as you enjoy your morning coffee!

Please feel free to ask questions during the broadcast, or you can leave them here in the comment section of this blog prior to tomorrow morning.

  • Have you ever wondered about the story of where your beef comes from?
  • Do you want to know about life in a Nebraska feedlot?
  • Are you looking for a way to start your day with a smile?

Join us tomorrow morning at 7:30am via Facebook Live 😊

See you then!

  2. The puppy is so cute. πŸ™‚ What’s the puppies name? How are your chickens? Sounds like ya’ll had a great summer πŸ™‚

    • Hi Kim! My new baby is named Theodore. The girls and I have wanted a puppy for several years now, and we took the plunge this summer. He is a yellow lab out of a litter that some friends of ours had the male. We are absolutely enamored with Theodore — he is awesome πŸ™‚ We haven’t had a puppy in a really long time because our older dog was a stray that adopted us after she was grown so we missed out on the puppy stage with Shellie…

      Our chickens are doing great. We got our first eggs out of the new flock this weekend! Ashley Grace was very proud πŸ™‚

      I can’t quite believe that the kids head back to school on Wednesday but Cross Country practice started 10 days ago, so I guess it is time. I am happy to be helping to coach the junior high and high school teams again this year; and all three of my girls are running. We have an awesome group of kids and I am looking forward to a great season.

      I hope that you are doing well and can get on the Facebook Live broadcast tomorrow. I don’t know if you facebook or not, but I have been trying to put up more family updates and pictures of Theodore on the Feed Yard Foodie facebook page (over and above what I put up on the blog) — you can check them out if it works out for you!

      Take care,

      • Anne,
        That is one cute pup. I’m so glad you and the girls got him. He’s one lucky farm dog.
        I don’t Facebook for many reasons, but found I can sometimes look on people’s pages of they are public. I’ll try yours.
        I can’t believe the summer for kids is over too. Seems like the kids I work with just got out. I love fall though.

        I’m so glad your having time to do things you enjoy like coaching more. The kids will benefit from you.

        I’m so excited about your chickens. One of our adolescents, as we call them, has started to lay and the eggs are so little its cute. The babies we have of the second new bunch are growing well too. I’m glad Ashley Grace is enjoying keeping chickens.

        The girls will do well this year, you’ve raised them well (you and Matt). Enjoy the last of the summer.

        – Kim
