My 300-acre farm is broken down into two segments:
Cotton - 160 acres
Soybeans - 140 acres
What I like about Agriculture:
My two favorite things about agriculture are being able to work for myself and watching crops grow. There's something to be said for the "simple life."
The Biggest Challenge Facing Agriculture:
High import costs make it hard for young people to enter agriculture today.
I'm Proud Of:
My family and my grandkids.
My wife, Marlene, and I have been married 48 years. We met in high school, which we rode the same bus to. We have two sons, Duane (Andrea) and Brett (Mandy), and five grandchildren.
I'm a member and deacon at Mountain Grove Baptist Church. I've also served as a Sunday School Teacher for the past 20 years over the Young Adults class.
A Good/Bad Day Is...
A good day is any day we have our children and grandchildren with us.
When you have your family and health, there isn't really a bad day.
You May Not Know...
I like driving my 1940 Ford coupe, which I rebuilt myself in my shop. I also like being a part of my church and knowing Christ.
