The Mad Cowboy Speaks

Set Higher Standards recently attended one of Howard Lyman’s speaking engagements. It seems the ole’ cowboy can really knock’em dead:
Howard’s talk was incredible. The auditorium was packed. His message was powerful. Howard, currently in his 60’s, was a 4th generation cattle rancher. His farm was the largest dairy operation in the state of Montana. He was a 300+ pound football player, turned “cowboy” for over 40 years of his life. After nearly dying as a result of chronic high blood pressure, he did a complete about face. He sold his farm, adopted a Vegan diet, and has dedicated his life to educating others about the importance of saving our environment, the animals and their lives; through dietary change. He travels over 300 days a year to deliver his message.

I saw Lyman at Boston Vegetarian Society Gathering. I was struck by how well he spoke. He was warm and engaging on a personal level too!

Thanks for posting a link to my article on

I indeed was absolutely amazed with the power and sincerety with which he spoke. Something about him is so genuine and sincere. He is on the road 300+ days per year delivering his message...I urge you to hear him in person if you can!
