We have been telling you for months about the Agriculture industry needing new farmers, but Agriculture needs new Ranchers just as much.

Kevin Yon and his wife, Lydia, are new to ranching but they have found a way to make it work because of the relationships they have built. But Kevin also says, if you don't know anything about business, you are going to struggle.

"Most of us in production of agriculture are very comfortable with the production aspects of what we do the everyday caring for cows, breeding cows, growing grass... but in our situation with those business principles that maybe we were little bit short on and I've had to work to learn those. and I'm sometimes learning the hard way but I would advise them, those that are getting started, to have a good strong business background and a good business plan. in this business we all love our cattle are very important to us but it's about people and it's about networking with people it's about creating partnership. all across the industry and you know we have so many Partnerships whether it be with her veterinarian or are University researchers and fellow Angus breeders as well."

He says it's hard to to be new to the business of ranching these days, but not impossible.
