I have been involved in the agriculture industry my whole life. I started out showing horses and taking care of calves on the farm. When I was old enough I started 4-H showing Angus cattle, and helping with day to day farm chores on the dairy and beef farm my parents operate. I was active through the years in 4-H, FFA, National and Minnesota Angus Association. Most recently I was working full time for Purina as a Livestock Specialist focusing on calf/heifer and cattle segments. I loved my job, but wanted to get more involved back in the farm and allow my three kids to gain the experiences I had on the farm. So this winter my husband and I started brainstorming ideas? I worked with calves daily, why not start raising my own?! So the project started snowballing and began in April. I quit working full time and reduced my consultant position down to a day a week. Now the building has begun and I hopefully will be able to keep up and post photos and keep this new journey logged!
