1. If I wanted to go to church.
2. If I wanted to show cattle.
It was always assumed that I would do both. So every Sunday you would find our entire family in the second to last row at the Somerset United Methodist Church. Every July you would find our entire family in the beef barn at the Perry County Fair. I might add the Sunday of the fair was one of four Sundays we would not be in Church.
Showing cattle started with my Dad and Uncle John when they began in 4-H.

Thank you Dad for my start in the beef industry.
