Thirty years ago we lived in a house in Gentry, Arkansas, on a busy road near the high school and within sight of a railroad crossing. To make matters noisier, the city-owned tornado warning horn was mounted to a pole in the corner of our front yard. When that rotating megaphone went off, the deafening sound traveled right through our poorly insulated walls and sounded as if it was in our house with us. On the plus side, this meant there was no chance of missing the signal on those occasions when it was time to gather into our 'safe place.' The location, the traffic, and the train whistle were just some of the factors that fed our desire to move to a place of quieter living.
At that time we owned one cow and a nice friend of ours allowed us to keep her on his property. One day Earl came home to excitedly announce the cow had given birth and we had doubled our herd! My city boy husband was getting the itch to have more cattle and his own place to keep them. I wanted to see him have the desires of his heart, and I wanted to get our kids out in the country where they would have more room to roam in nature.
After months of searching, we located an older home on 40 flat, rock free acres (a combination almost unheard of here in the Ozarks). Problem was, we couldn't afford it. The banker we talked to was not encouraging. "Just no way young people today can afford to buy a farm," he said, "lands just too expensive." Most people, he told us, get started in farming by acquiring acreage that is already in the family. Well, that wasn't an option for us so we went to a higher source.
We knew God, owner of ALL, including " ..cattle on a thousand hills...," had shown his hand of provision all through our lives. We found a verse in the Bible, Deuteronomy 28:3, that said this, "You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country." We'd already felt tremendously blessed in the city so we figured God was willing to do more. We believed that verse applied to us and looked forward to the day it would come to pass.
Sure enough, after some time we were able to figure out a way to buy the 40 acres in the country. Over the next couple of years, we worked hard to improve the place. We did what we could to make the old house more homey, and Earl fertilized the fields and the grass grew tall. The next summer we cut hay! We were so excited to see hay being baled on our own land for the first time.
We had acquired a few more head of cattle by then when a neighbor came and asked us to care for some cows in exchange for half the calves. If he had known how green we were about raising cattle, he probably wouldn't have asked. In that first year or two there were a few episodes where we tried to do things without the proper knowledge or equipment...like, for instance, lassoing a cow with a $1 rope from Walmart, and other misguided learning experiences. We came to call these "Rowe rodeos" in those early years. I am happy to report that, for the most part anyway, our rodeo days are over.
After the third year, we sold off the old house with one acre of land. Earl had been blessed with an advancement in his employment status by then and after much fervent prayer we were able to build a new house in the trees on the other end of our land. We stayed there for 18 more years during which time Earl began to research this strange breed; Wagyu cattle. I Googled the name to see what he was talking about. "What?? Why??" was my reaction when I took a look at pictures. He had to convince me there was more than outward appearances to consider.
He wanted to try his hand at raising Wagyu cattle and produce the best tasting beef possible, He said. I gave in and gave him my tentative blessing to order a bull from Crescent Harbor Ranch and that was our first full blood Wagyu animal. He later ordered six embryos from Bald Ridge Wagyu in Australia and that was our start. In 2016 we sold our place near Gentry and moved to our current ranch on a hill with a beautiful view here in northwest Arkansas. We are a half hour west of Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA. We have more land and more cattle, although we're still a small enough operation to pay close attention to each animal we raise and focus on the best genetics we can produce.
Our current ranch, with its rolling hills, good water sources, ample grass, balanced mix of rain and sunny days, mild winters and now full time caretakers on site (since we're both "retired", yippee!) has been yet another blessing. It provides the perfect place for healthy, happy, low stress living for our Wagyu cattle herd while also providing us pretty close to the same!
God has been faithful in his blessings to us in the city and in the country, just as the verse says, through our herd, yes, but in so many other amazing ways as well.
So much so that is really impossible to tell our story without Him.
