I grew up in East Texas on a chicken farm, and as a kid, patching holes and putting the chicks back in the barns was my first “job”. Moving to Missouri when I was young, I was constantly looking for ways to get back out on a farm. I got a job with a local cattle/row crop operation in high school, and have helped them ever since. For 4 years, I ran custom application equipment for a local MFA, and getting to be on different farms every day meeting new farmers and helping them get the best out of their soil and crops was very gratifying. Being a steward of the land and improving the ground we work on day in and day out is what keeps me going every day.
