Why we chose careers in agriculture

We were both raised in agriculture, and it’s been a part of our heritage. It offers a career where you can work together as a family. Some days we’re economists, some days we’re animal scientists and some days we’re agronomists. Agriculture presents a different challenge every day and we love it that way.

Choosing Frontier Farm Credit for our operating line

Frontier Farm Credit came to the top of the list when we were looking for an operating line of credit because of accessibility – local offices, a face and a name we could contact and very competitive rates. Plus, we liked the fact that any business that we do comes back to us as a dividend annually.

Working with a cooperative

We like that we’re part owners of Frontier Farm Credit. Every bit of business that we do with them benefits us and our co-owners. That has a real significant effect on rates and services and it’s always better if you’ve got skin in the game.

Using technology in our operation

Technology is the great leveler. It has enabled us to be better managers of our cattle and our finances. Our record keeping has become very streamlined, whether it’s animal records or financial records. We are constantly gathering data and now we can do it remotely with the smartphones in our pockets.

Our vision for the future

We’ve always been a cow-calf operation, but we’ve transitioned into a seed-stock operation. We’re doing more and more seed stock every year and trying to grow the business so that it can support our family. We want to make sure that this operation can evolve so that we can bring our daughters in as the next generation.
