    Owning the Asset You Can Eat | Ann Barnhardt
    Reluctant Preppers



    Published on Jul 30, 2016
    What's the #1 recommended asset to acquire for survival (even ahead of gold & silver?) This asset can keep you and your family fed for generations, keep growing in long-term value, and serve as a major tax shelter.. It's owned by many of the mega-rich, but you can get started at bargain-basement prices right now? Ann Bernhardt, founder of former Barnhardt Capital Management and and expert in teaching people how to succeed owning this asset, returns to Reluctant Preppers to lay out how to enjoy the benefits, avoid the pitfalls, and get started in step-by-step actions to owning this asset at bargain-basement methods. Share this message with your self-reliance-minded family and friends!


    BACKGROUND

    American grain production paradigm greatly flawed through subsidies & guaranteed government price supports. Cattlemen have lost the skill set of marketing & trading cattle.


    BENEFITS OF RAISING & TRADING CATTLE

    =======================

    Gold & Silver vs. Cattle:


    Gold & Silver: Good for holding wealth together, especially in a catastrophe, portable, minimize losses, not perishable over any period of time.


    Cattle: Food security for survival: You actually are owning & growing FOOD, and gaining value because they are GAINING WEIGHT. Hedge against inflation and currency debasement. Cashflow from trading lightweight feeder cattle vs. running a cow herd. Tax shelter advantages vs. other forms of income.


    PITFALLS

    Agricultural products are perishable: need to harvest crops whether plants or animals at the time they come mature.

    Daily commitment to caring for your herd - you don’t need to go it alone!


    HOW TO GET STARTED

    ==================

    Beyond Currency Current inflation & failure will induce panic and mis-pricing by ordinary people Understand how to barter & compare value between asset classes You must know how to trade smart & level-headed when others are panicked and don’t assess real value. Take care of yourself so you are able to help others Reality is you need to remain functional and be able to help people by holding your assets together Being smart & savvy: fortune favors the prepared mind.


    Learning Lear about successful ranching for your desired location US States/Counties: Land Grant Universities, County Extension programs, Extension agent, extension office Ask for information on cattle production in that county, forage, carrying capacity of the land Understand: Steers, Heifers, Cows, Calves, Bulls, Feeder cattle, Artificial Insemination, gestation cycle, grass finish, locker plant, mobile slaughtering stations, meat storage w/power, backup fuel, market to sell/barter into Network with other cattle ranchers, close-knit & generally trustworthy Ann Barnhardt’s cattle marketing DVD Series link: 16 hrs full seminar, 65pg workbook, essential facts & math you need to know to succeed. --- see link on: http://www.Barnhardt.Biz Contact Ann via email: Ann@Barnhardt.biz


    Acquiring You must acquire acreage & forage land before animals. Fastest entry path: Leasing/renting grazing ground Limit number of head to enable them to graze and gain on the land you have without overloading the land.


    Managing Part-Time: Cow herd can be manage in your spare time, every evening or so. Full-Time: Trading of feeder cattle: run through chutes, treating, tagging, trading (by yourself or order buyers) Connect with neighbors, family, friends, or have hired hands to assist with managing the herd, especially when you need to be gone.


    Guarding Cattle Rustling is on the rise! Rustlers have to know what they’re doing, have a trailer, drive the cattle, load them onto semi National associations are working on improved security Technologies for monitoring & tracking, like car tracking chips, If you can’t start in from of your asset with an AR, you don’t own it Dogs raise the alarm when strangers come around Good working cattle dogs


    Loopholes / Special Situations North American cattle industry: Fallout from generations of government intervention has driven away the young people - old-timers selling out, may never have learned how to profitably run the business so their family is not interested, entire operation goes up for sale (example: 80 Acres, house, facilities) Figure out where you want to live first! Look for estate & auction listings: you’ll find ready-to-go operations coming up for sale. House most likely not a new show home, but “good enough”

    Owning the means to produce food takes you a step away from the control of TPTB.

    If the market collapses and you can still produce your own food, then the market collapsing is of less significance to you.

    Instead of having FEMA, the government should be promoting self-sufficiency.

    Feed Your Family on Zero Acres | Joel Salatin
    Reluctant Preppers



    Published on Aug 7, 2016
    With our drinkable water sources tainted with agricultural runoff, while food allergies, asthma and birth defects are on the rise... as our population grows to record levels and the need for food production on shrinking farm area encroached by growing suburban sprawl - are we doomed to poisoning ourselves with chemical fertilizer, or starving if we return to organic faming? And is it even possible for an individual homeowner to raise enough food to feed his or her own family, let alone have enough to share with friends and neighbors? Nationally known activist farmer, author, lecturer, co-founder of teaching plantation Polyface Farms, Joel Salatin, returns to Reluctant Preppers to give a scathing yet witty analysis of how we’ve fallen off the hay wagon of logic, but can still turn to integrated permaculture to unlock almost unlimited potential from whatever area we have at hand. A positive and fact-filled message of practicality and hope for a hungry world.


    IN THIS INTERVIEW: Soil depletion is not a new challenge throughout the history of mankind The rise (and moral fall) of the chemical fertilizer industry Flawed government “research” on organic faming floods media and mindshare with prejudicial “science” and jaundices people’s opinions of food production Properly planned growing techniques can run circles around chemical agriculture Reaping violence against ecology has resulted in many of today’s rampant illnesses (food allergies, asthma, IBD, cancers, etc..)


    How much land does it take to fee one family? Amazingly small space is needed Sprouting (living) food kits take only a few square feet of space, can provide 30-40% of your greens High-tech stackable systems, vertical growing systems 55 gal plastic drum with dozens of pockets around the outside, central watering tube, wicks through soil & compost, raise: herbs, strawberries, tomatoes, cabbages, grow a small garden in the footprint of a chair! Disappointed by soilless systems (aeroponics), due to nutrition in food.. Want soil-based systems for full microbial life cycle 1 acre of vertical covert food tubes can produce 12 acres of food State-of-the-art solarium even on an old house: South-facing wall, stones for thermal mass, tubular plastic solarium panes grow mixed greens, Add a 6-foot solarium to your south wall “Venetian blinds” of food trays hanging from 2nd story windows on south side of house, shades and cools house through evaporative cooling Flat or shallow roof, garden or bee hive “Kitchen chickens” : Few animals are more productive than chickens: a small cage of chickens clean up your kitchen scraps, produce eggs, provide litter/manure to side-dress vegetables If a few acres: Portable chicken shelter, can run chickens throughout the yard If tiny yard: Under stationary coop with a deep (12-24”) of material under the chickens: use carbon medium, loose enough for chickens to move: sawdust, pine bark, layers at a time, becomes a living medium, bugs & worms can grow, chickens scratch/aerate, no smell! Fabric garden beds: Hugelculture (woody material in bottom, thin layer of soil, roots grow under woody base, highly productive, mobile raised bed) Michael Aleman (Vancouver BC) Plastic livestock watering tank, farming in asphalt driveways, portable farm is modular & mobile. Community outreach, healing on distressed areas. Build alliances with local growers: “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Future” Beef, pork, dairy are a challenge in the city. But you can form relationships with nearby famers who are building soil that will survive even if Wall Street collapses. Local-centric supplied and themed multi-species farms are running on real-time solar energy and innovation. Not dependent on supply chain of chemical fertilizers. Prep those local relationships to build a local fraternity that has the best chance of seeing you through hard times! Free Range Saturdays at Polyface Farms Grow It, Fix It, Make It!

    Seems to me chickens or pigs would be a LOT easier to manage. Less picky on food and fewer health issue also. I've never seen a pig or chicken stomach get twisted. Smaller also.

    Libtards are palpable if you cook them long enough and use enough hot sauce. Plus they're more plentiful than cattle!

    While that makes sense, the same gov't you are talking about, is handing out EBT cards like candy. Hard to get people to grow a garden, raise poultry, etc., when the
    unwashed masses can swipe an EBT card for a cart full of groceries.

    You just have field dress them properly so the venom and poison don't contaminate the nearly unused muscle tissue. Slow cooking them also helps break down the vile elements too.
