Share a little about your farm operation:

I have a small show pig business, about 30 sows. I raise Berks, Polands, Landrace, and Hamps. I grew up in the Angus cattle business, married into a Simmental family, but have had show pigs for 22 years.

 

Advice to those starting out in the industry:

 Raise the breed(s) and the kind you love. Don’t chase the trends, you will always

be a follower. Get involved in leadership and association activities. Always be learning.

 

What is your favorite show/event?

     I love them all, but the Southwest Type Conference in Belton, Texas, is by far my

favorite.

 

Fun Fact:

I was a college teacher for 22 years, I wrote text books for 13 and I am one of the few female hog buyers in the United States.
