What made you become an AFCA Director? I joined ACFA after conversations with friends on the board and I wanted to contribute to the industry while staying current with the changing landscape.

Tell us a funny feedlot story: Most funny stories usually come at the expense of a fellow coworker. Stepping out of a rubber boot and face planting in a muddy pen, while trying to get it back without anyone noticing always rates near the top!

What makes Monarch unique? We are unique in that we have 10+ family members involved in the business and have managed to make it work.
