I think he owns little, he runs an investment group. Horses are used to herd cattle on very large farms out west. I heard he had a large calf loss this winter in the 100,s. It does not look good, look for a large fire sale soon. I could say more but I'll wait for the signs on the buildings
bad information

Don't know where you get your gossip from but they didn't loose 100s of calves. Lmao every farm deals with loss of unhealthy animals but its not even in double digits! As for your comment about a large fire sale.......don't know what that means but they are doing fine over there. Spring is the time to sell the beef. They also have a number of breeder bulls that will come in handy.....not only for pure blood line but for sale as well. They cattle look very good.....its been a bad winter for a lot of farmers so why pick on one pick on them all!

I heard they are backed by Frackers and the Farm is just a front. They are holding Cooperstown at ransom , because they bought land bordering Weaver lake, which is a main tributary to Otsego Lake.
wow

uhhh weaver lake is no where near cooperstown hahaha its in richfield springs. As for the farm being a front take a drive there are 2500 head of angus beef on that farm why waste the money to use it as a front? they had a huge meeting at the farm n.a.d.a. was the name North American Develin Association all about cows people not fracking look it up!!!!!!!!!!

He treats all his employees like crap. No health ins., no holiday pay, no paid sick days. He treats them all like they are dumb hicks. It would run alot better if the manager wasn't there. And the fact that they shot a bull and buried it due to a broken leg. Why not send it to get processed and the meat given to his employees or to a food kitchen? Let's not talk about his bills. Doesn't pay his leases, bill collectors, repo guys looking for equipment that he hasn't paid on....the list goes on and on.

Well they do get holiday and sick pay and if they choose to have health insurance they do give it to them. As for shooting a bull with a broken leg.....do u work there? Do you know what happened or if its true? Probibly not!......do you see his finances? Ummmm well?

Well then your friends must not be telling you the full truth ralphie I know a few myself that work there and have no complaints. Let the man run his buisness the way he wants if your friends are that pissed that they "dont" get holiday and sick pay which is bullsht then they should quit cuz those cows don't need their neglectful attitudes! I would love to know whom they are.....think they. Need to get new jobs so mr thompson can hire others that actually care.......... low lifes!
not all have it

No matter where you work lots of places don't pay you sick or holiday pay. I know I don't. But I did hear they all got very nice holiday bonuses doesn't that count? I agree with haaaa, if they are unhappy with their jobs instead of complaining to the public why not leave and get another job? I have seen some of what they do when I drive to work and if I got paid to drive a tractor and fill water tubs I would do it! It doesn't seem like the ones that work there are dedicated enough to be working on a farm. Its a 24 7 job! Good luck and god bless
