Episode 268. Managing Land, Cattle, and Quality of Life: Dr. Tina Cone, DVM
In this episode of Voices from the Field, we get acquainted with Dr. Tina Cone, a retired veterinarian in Berryville, Arkansas. In a conversation with NCAT Livestock Specialist Linda Coffey, Tina talks about the life she now leads during her second career — raising beef cattle and practicing regenerative grazing.
Tina loves what she does and describes the family business and the joys and challenges of running a large cattle operation in the rugged terrain of the Ozarks. She talks about the satisfaction of seeing soil and pastures and cattle improve, and of children coming home to live and work in the business. Stewardship, legacy, and quality of life are themes that run throughout the conversation.
