Podcast, Joao speaks with Cary Lightsey of Lightsey Cattle Company in Lake Wales, Florida. Cary shares how he, his brother Layne, and their families manage their cow-calf operation including their breeding program, feeding and supplementation programs, pasture management, and how backgrounding cattle has reduced their death loss.
