- FAMILY FARM
- It's a Centennial Farm. Lots of feelings about it. The farm borders I-74 and on the edge of Mahomet. Near development areas of Mahomet. Development or tax law changes could affect keeping farm in the family.
- FARM-RELATED WORK
- Likes to work with enthusiastic students. Teachers beef cattle production. He coached livestock judging teams. Get fifteen students who work five sessions a week and travel weekends across the country. They rank animals best to worst and tell why. Have 800 alumni from the program. They are leaders in their various fields. Being involved with research has been rewarding. Reflects on funding problems.
