If I had to share one thing about me it would be that Angus cattle have been a part of my life since I was a kid. This is one of the earliest memories I have of learning to show cattle with my Grandfather, Earl Bordner.
Being raised on a farm instilled a strong work ethic and appreciation for our natural resources. It also fostered an independent, fearless spirit. There was no Google or YouTube; when something broke you tried to fix and if that didn’t work, you tried something else. We had to figure it out! Both of my grandparents ran farms and one had a small feed business. I learned some of my best lessons from watching my grandparents.
Today my husband manager our own herd of cattle and I have enjoyed every moment of watching our children discover the joys of raising cattle. One of my favorites is when the boys tried to catch a calf so it could be ear tagged.
The kids are finding their way around the farm and are discovering it is a lot of work, but there are plenty of moments to be joyful.
I still enjoy working with farms and agri-businesses as I understand the industry first hand. Agri-businesses were my first clients back in 1999 and many still are.
If you ever want to know more about farming or Angus cattle just ask. I have lots to share.
I recently added this to my office. It makes me happy.
