Feature Job of the Month: Brian Thompson
Brian Thompson of T-bar Farms is located in Cameron, MO. He runs an operation that consists of 2,000 acres of row crops and 200 cow/calf pairs. He hired Gatrel Enterprises to build a set of working pens with both an alleyway and a load out. He chose 6 bar continuous fence panels. He was able to design the working facility to his specifications. He said "It was nice to have another person who knows cattle to be able to bounce ideas off of".
He said that his prior working facility consisted of "Old antique boards you have to wire up to work cattle. That combined with being short of help made me decide to go for a change". He uses his working facility mostly for preg checking and aging. When asked why he decided to hire Jeff he said, "Truthfully it was because of some of my neighbors. I drive past their house nearly every day. Jeff did an awful good looking job at their place You drive by enough times and you decide to do something".
When asked if he was satisfied with the work Jeff did he replied "Very satisfied. Everything was exactly the way I want it. Even though we didn't discuss a certain area Jeff did it just like I wanted it. I like having good latches and not having to always chain my gates. I am really glad to have all steel fence. I am 29 years old and in my lifetime I have already set hedge post and had to redo them. This way I am just done. I like having good square post and how tidy the fence looks."
In closing he said, "There are a lot of people who know how to weld and put up steel fence. Very few of them are cattlemen. Jeff knows how cattle work. He is not just a fence builder. He knows how to make the system work right and flow. It was good to be on the same page with the person who was putting up my fence. I could leave and get my work done knowing that my fence was being built right."
