1. How long have you been involved with Ag?
For about 23 years. My husband and I started building our cattle herd around 1996, more as a hobby in the beginning. We started with just a few commercial cows. Over the years we added land and cattle. Today it’s a much bigger and more serious operation.
2. What type of ag are you involved with?
Commercial beef cattle and seed stock Red Angus. We started the seed stock Red Angus business about four years ago and are still building our program. This is an exciting area where we focus on finding and using the best genetics. We partner with some of the best Red Angus ranches in the country, which provides lots of opportunity to learn and share.
3. What's your favorite ag memory?
Watching my son and his dad working cattle together.
4. What inspires you about ag?
The people. There are so many great people in the cattle industry. Making connections with other ranchers is what makes it so much fun.
Plus, there is no prettier sight than a group of healthy red cows in tall green grass.
