Hello Steerplant'ers. I was wondering who is the better show cattle/ cattleman's producer marketing company for a new farm wanting to get started?

First of all, both are graphic design companies; only one tiny part of the Marketing puzzle.

I can only say we had Stephanie work up a design first and emailed back on the 2nd draft some changes.  I emailed and called probably 6 times and never heard back from her over a month or so period.  I wasn't out any money and I think she does a good job but I don't really know what happened.  I then got in touch with Ranch House and had it all done in a week or so.  They were very innovative and understood what I wanted even though they were a little higher.  I'm sure I'll make someone mad with this but it's just what I experienced.  Good Luck

Ranch House does great work ! That cover on K-Kim's catalog a couple of years back was truly a work of art.

Ranch House Designs does our website- very creative, knowledgable and always has neat ideas, but there are a few things that I think really put them above and beyond for me-
- they're great customer service (Staff is very friendly and helpful.  If I send an email about an inquiry, I get a response immediately, everyone is easy to work with)
-they're  effective but have a quick "work/project" turnaround (web updates are done within hours of the request and no more than 1 day- now they say within 5 days it'll be done but I've always had it done with 1 day.).  We did an email blast and I sent all the info to them and within a day or two, it was completed.
-they've won numerous awards and have been around the cattle business forever.  (I had done a sale catalog with a company that hired a non livestock person to do catalog work- and I sent her information about the cows and embryos that were in the sale and she was completely clueless.  She emailed me back asking for a picture of the embyro's for sale (i included a picture of the dam and sire- but she didnt think that was good enough, she wanted pictures of the embryos.  I said there's no picture for the embryo's- needless to say we got a laugh about it, but it was frustrating to deal with someone that didn't have a clue about livestock sale catalogs)

I've never had any complaints with Ranch House Designs.

We use Laura Sutherly www.correspondinaclick.com  she has a cattle background, very professional, very reasonable for someone, like our farm, that is getting started with a website and the thing we like the best is we get total control of our own site.  She recommended some inexpensive software that we do our own updates.  The way to create traffic is to update and make good changes!  This way there is no charge for resizing photos, updates or anything!  If you need help she is always available to help!  This works for us!  Check her out!  At least give her a call to compare.  She designed our logo, website and has been a gem to work with.  

Cook Show Cattle  www.cookshowcattle.com Ck out our site to see what she can do.  We started with 3 pages and added a page later.  She also did our site for www.bgshowmen.com.

NOT EDJE> they do a terrible job on the websites I have seen... Ranch houses are nice, most are unique...

A person might want to talk to rsc (Tony) about who just redone his website.  Real nice job with the narration.  www.romshekshowcattle.com   As far as these other two gals go they probably both belong in the upfront donor pen.   heh heh..

  We have only worked with EDJE and over the last three years they have been very prompt and efficient.We have no need to change even though all the others do good work as well.

Stephanie does great work..But getting her too do it is sometimes a problem..Dont know if she is that busy or what! But sometimes it takes her a while to get back too you.. Really isnt good when your cruch for time..
Talked to Steph a few days ago, she's super booked.  She said it's getting hard to get everything done.
