For me, agriculture isn’t just about farming, it’s about the people, the love, the animals, and most of all, the traditions. I follow my father and grandfather before me, who passed on their love for cattle and the agricultural way of life. I grew up on a small beef farm, where we started out with just a couple Black Angus cows. Now, we also raise crossbred club calves and registered Maine Anjou. (If you would like to see some of the calves, feel free to visit our website, http://www.drake362.wix.com/drakeshowcattle)
I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Livestock Science and am employed in the agricultural industry. Through my education and life experiences, I have only strengthened my love for agriculture, and hope that through this blog I can help to educate the public on the joys and everyday events of farming. Many times in today’s society, farmer’s voices are drowned out, but it’s time they are heard.
