Hi folks. I retired from my engineering job six yrs ago, and successfully escaped from southern California. My wife and I bought a small ranch in eastern Oklahoma, sold our old house and moved. Been building fences, buildings, a new house, and social connections with the new area ever since.

I am not actually a newbee to farming, I grew up on a quarter section corn and soybean farm in Iows. But that was a completely different environment, and nearly 50 yrs ago, so it seems like I am a complete newbee here.

Bear with me if I ask a bunch of simple questions about grass land manangement, and livestock diseases common in the ozark area.
