OFI 1185: When Preparation, Hustle And Hard Work Meets Opportunity | Dexter And Kayla Dedora | Longhorns & Leather
Today's ag business interview has it all for you. As a matter of fact, I have never seen the concepts that we talk about on the Off-Farm Income Podcast come together quite so well as they have for today's guests.
Dexter and Kayla Dedora are cattle ranchers in Alberta, Canada. They both grew up around cattle and agriculture and were determined to have this same life for themselves and their kids. Of course, being determined and getting it done are two different things, and that is why this show exists. At this point, the Dedora's are well on their way to the life that they have been seeking. However, they have been "lucky". When I say lucky, what I mean is that they have worked hard, hustled and they were ready when an opportunity presented itself.
Dexter and Kayla are purchasing the ranch and operation of a retiring ranch couple. They are doing this through a gradual transition process, just the same way that we have talked about on the show so many times. This began with them leasing land from the ranch owners and purchasing their Longhorn Cattle herd. The relationship has built over time, and now they have an agreement and are slowly moving it into their possession.
