Good Friends Are Worth Their Weight In Gold

The trailer is locked and loaded & our crew is headed north for the 13-hour drive back home with full and happy hearts. Exciting things are coming to Radke Land & Cattle, and we can’t wait to share more about the direction we are headed in the weeks ahead.
But first — a story about some very special people, friends who are worth their weight in gold. 
In 2021, I shared on social media that Michelle Weber Studio and I were going to begin working on a book titled “Faith, Family, Freedom,” and we were looking for sponsors to help us offset the cost of production.
In less than a minute after I posted our project online — we received our first donation. From a guy named Chris Earl.
When his sponsorship came in, I thought to myself, “WHO is this cowboy from New Mexico?”
A few months later, I finally had the chance to find out. Chris was passing through Mitchell on his way to a bull sale, and I took him to my church and a local coffee shop for our first meeting. An odd meet and greet for most, but I can’t think of a better way to start a friendship than by celebrating our shared faith.
We quickly realized how aligned we were on faith, family values, politics, and cattle industry issues, and Chris has become a huge encouragement and mentor to Tyler Radke and I as we navigate these years with young kids, building a cattle business, and me being on the road so much speaking.
And I count it as a great honor and privilege to have gotten to know Chris and his wife Krista and the rest of the Earl family in the last couple of years.
God has a way of bringing the right people into your life when you need it most.
It’s rare to find a family that boldly and unapologetically lives out their faith the way the Earls do, and even better that Chris and his entire crew put these values 100,000% into their work in the beef cattle industry we all love.
If you don’t know Chris Earl and the entire Reverse Rocking R Ranch, CK6 Consulting Services Inc., and CK6 Source crew, you are sorely missing out. Get yourself to an Angus sale and meet them.
You’ll be better for it, I guarantee. I know I am.
Thank you to the Earl family for welcoming us into the fold like family. What a JOY it was to bring our kiddos down to spend a few days with all of you this week! We treasure the time so much, and are so incredibly grateful.
Thank you and God Bless you all!
