The cattle industry is in an interesting time, the generations removed from agricultural practices are questioning cattle producers freedom to operate. The usual discussions are still there for the industry of high input prices, cattle prices that are a constant roller coaster, drought throughout much of the country, while other areas are dealing with mass amounts of standing water. The test and trails of this business and lifestyle are often more than average person wants to deal with, although the majority of cattlemen and women throughout the country would never trade in their way of life for anything else.
A friend, industry advocate and entertainer sent this song my way last last week. She sent it over for my listening pleasure, and instantly knew I needed to share this great piece.
I am simply giddy over it. Titled A Cattlemen’s Prayer — how couldn’t I be. No matter your take on religion, the song will surely give you chills and hopefully cause to you stop a minute and say a prayer for the lifestyle and dedication it takes to be involved in the American cattle industry.
A Cattlemen’s Prayer is by Take Two Productions, LLC., Cara Ayres & Beth Schreiber, and Duane Chandler 45th Parallel Studios.
Two years ago at Christmas, Duane had us listen to Cara and Beth’s latest recording — Perfect Temple — which was written for the Special Olympics Montana focused around the amazing Temple Grandin. Take a listen at this neat song!
