We have been married for more than 22 years, and have five kids: Meghan, a college junior, age 21; Allie, a college freshman, age 18; Trent, a high school senior, age 17; and Tyler and Eric are sophomores in high school, age 16 (yes, they are twins!).
We have about 250 mama cows raising calves, and 350 heifers (cows that haven't had a calf yet). We sell bulls and heifers and sometimes feed out our steers at a feedyard. But usually our product is the genetics that other ranchers use to produce beef.
I post to this blog weekly to share with people around the world what life is like in rural Kansas and how my family works every day to ensure a safe, nutritious supply of beef to consumers.
