Ag State of Mind Episode 142 – Debby Despain – Mindfulness

In mental health circles, mindfulness is becoming a very popular approach to tackling acute issues. I know in my life, practicing mindfulness has been so important to me being my best self

This past Independence Day weekend I had the fortune to set down with Debby DeSpain and chat about mindfulness. We talked about how she came across my article in Progressive Cattleman by accident, but decided she needed to reach out anyway. We chat about how busy and crazy the lives of folks in agriculture can be and how implementing a bit of mindfulness into daily practice can help us be our better selves. To reach out to Debbie… email her at

ASOM – Ep 161 – Ranching For Better Mental Health Ag State of Mind with Jason Medows

In 2018 I met Burke Teichert who is one of my personal heroes in the ranching industry. From that moment forward I began to think differently about ranching. I began to look at it from a more holistic point of view. This has led me to change many things within our business. Today, I talk about the why behind these changes. That why is better overall health for me and my family. We get into the practices that I have changed and how getting more in sync with nature has made for better health.
