I dreamed of many things when I was a young girl, but the thought of appearing as a Cover Girl in Beef Magazine never even registered on my radar screen. While I have certainly been a life-long beef lover, my journey as a cattleman began at the age of twenty-two.
Eighteen years later, I am the proud recipient of the 2014 Trailblazer Award — an award given by Beef Magazine to a cattle farmer for his/her volunteer efforts to improve the beef industry.
Receiving this award humbles me almost as much as the kind words and attention to detail that Joe Roybal and Beef Magazine placed on the story. Please take a few minutes to read it online by clicking here. Be sure to also click here to view the picture slide show that accompanies the main article.
The last 18 years have been a tremendously adventurous journey. While the road to excellence is rarely comfortable, being tenacious enough to travel down it is incredibly rewarding. Many thanks to all who have mentored me — Please know that I do my best each day to return the favor.
I hope that they deliver Beef Magazine to Heaven, as my Dad will likely want to brag a bit about this one…
