As a cattleman, I know it’s important for the long-term health of the beef industry that we constantly improve our practices to grow an end product that consumers will want to continue serving to their families. And as a businessman, I also understand the importance of continuous expansion of our market to maintain that sustainability.

I know what it’s like to have someone depending on me. I have four little children who look to me for clean clothes, a full tummy, and lots of love and support.
