Grew up in Texas Panhandle about 1 hour south of Amarillo on family operation. Went to West Texas A&M University for a BS in Animal Science and to Kansas State University to work on my Masters degree. I worked for Cargill Animal Nutrition in Garden City KS, Guymon OK, and Hereford TX before moving home. Currently own a custom harvesting company and operate a custom spraying business for my dad's friend. My Dad and G-pa have both retired, but my Uncle is still operating and I am currently buying in to the operation as I can. We grow the normal mix of cash grain crops but also breed haygrazer seed and grow specialty pickling cucumbers for Best Maid Pickles of Fort Worth. Cow-calf, stockers, and feedyarding also play a lot into the business.
