"My whole life I spent working on the ranch finding ways to improve grass, select better genetics, cut costs, all to add value to the cattle I sold off the ranch…and at the end of the day, a simple market move could wipe out a whole year's profits!! I spent a whole career trying to find ways to bring more money into the ranching business, and realized that protecting my hard earned profits through a proper marketing program was actually the best way to keep a year's or a lifetime's worth of hard work from going down the drain. That is why I have built this company, to work with ranchers to offer a service that protects the value of their product, so they can focus on building and improving it." – Ryan Copithorne
