Greg Judy was forced to liquidate his cow herd to pay debt in 1996.
A quote from Allan Nation, editor of The Stockman Grass Farmer magazine changed his whole view of ranching.
” Inspired by that approach, Judy started looking for idle, non-developed pastureland.
By custom grazing on leased land he was able to pay his entire farm and home loan within three years.
No Risk Ranching, Custom Grazing on Leased Land describes how he found and managed his first and subsequent leases.
No Risk Ranching was written to help other graziers from making the same mistakes Judy made.
By the end of the following year he was dead broke and figured the family farm was history.
Nation said, “Your sole purpose should be not to own the land, but to make a living from the land.
By focusing on leasing rather than owning land, his grazing operation grew from 40 stockers to 1100 head.
He writes, “I am convinced that in the USA our pastures are one of our most underutilized natural resources.
I just feel like it is an awful hardship on a new blooming grazing business.
He offers a detailed guide for other graziers to follow on how to find idle land to lease; calculate the cost of a lease; draft and write a land lease contract (with examples included); develop good water and portable fencing on leased land; promote wildlife and improve timber stands; keep accurate records and more.
After a series of tragic events that robbed her of a father and put her sister in a coma, Autumn Sullivan was forced to take on several jobs just to get by.
David’s strategy of hiring Autumn—as a submissive—backfires when he finds himself enchanted by her sense of humor and playful attitude.
This enigmatic submissive is openly hiding things from him.
None of them are prepared for what the FBI uncovers.

It should be an easy job—his father already has a suspect in mind.
She’s an accounting assistant by day, an occasional service Domme on the weekend, and a thief-for-hire by night.
Determined to prove her innocence, he enlists the help of Malcolm Legato and Agent Keith Rossetti to dig deeper.
Her secretive nature and the bread crumbs she drops about her past don’t add up—not even when he assigns Jesse Foraker, his SAFE Security buddy—to tail her and search her apartment.
Falling in love wasn’t in the plan, but David makes her believe that she isn’t doomed to live a solitary life.
Warnings: BDSM party games, sex toys, bondage, flogging, spanking, and a trip to the beach.
Honoring a promise he made to his late mother, David Eastridge, part owner of SAFE Security, returns home one final time—to help his father find the culprit responsible for embezzling three million dollars from his company.
There are twenty million acres of lawns in North America.
However, viewed through a different lens, they can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity.

The driver was Joe Chamberlain, his privately run ’69 Trans Am Camaro, car and driver combination had run in the West Coast Trans Am races during 1969 and 1970.
Seasoned racing driver Dennis ‘Marbles’ Marwood took the hot seat and was a front-runner for two seasons (1970-’72).
Marwood’s swansong with the Camaro came with a great run at Warwick Farm at the second round of the Australia versus NZ big saloon test match in August 1972 with a fine second place.
During the cars restoration, Tony sanded down the old panels and the previous racing numbers were revealed — John Riley #50, Dennis Marwood #25 and 24 and Joe Chamberlain #2.
Ian Rorison was the man responsible for the Camaro’s arrival in NZ in late 1970.
Marwood leased the car from Rorison for a second season (1971-’72) finishing third in the title chase.
The Camaro then appeared in the 1973-’74 season, now in the hands of crowd favorite, Johnny Riley.
Chamberlain competed with the Camaro at the Bay Park International New Year Meeting, New Zealand in late December 1970 then at the NZ Grand Prix meeting a week later at Pukekohe, before Rorison made a successful offer for the orange Camaro.
