Love for Agriculture and Red Dirt music #WorthTheFight

Nothing in this life is free. Good things come to those who work hard, and for me that includes pursuing my passion. I’m proud of my roots at home in Arkansas. It’s a great state with many traditions, and great people who contribute to the world, but “you’re always 17 in your hometown.” Branching out […]

What does Agriculture mean to you?

“Agriculture. It’s more than a part of life. It’s a passion, a lifestyle, a resilient community that works hard to feed the world.” I first put this statement together in November 2010 after asking several of my followers why they were thankful for Agriculture (see blog series).

My Job, Better Than Vacation

Not sure who, but someone once said “My day job is better than your vacation.” Pretty sure they were talking about my life. The past week has been quite a workout for myself, Pistol, and Grulla. We’ve been gathering bulls for the end of breeding season. Everything has been pretty smooth with the exception of […]

Sharing My Passion With New Mexico FFA Students

Nothing but my best. Last week I told you about my trip to New Mexico where I had the opportunity to teach elementary and middle school youth about Agriculture. During this trip I also had the privilege of being the FFA banquet guest speaker. Even though this was a first for me, I had to […]
