Every year, just as the last of the holiday cards are delivered to mailboxes, we meet with fellow shepherds to reflect on the last business year and look ahead to a new year.
The Michigan Sheep Breeders Association is an organization we’ve been involved with for many years. In a way, we’ve built our business alongside and because of these farmers. We’re truly grateful to come together each year to share ideas, hear from agricultural professionals and re-evaluate the goals of our farm.
This year it was especially exciting to have our youngest daughter attending the conference as a beginning farmer. Her interest in farming is a constant reminder to us that raising our children on our first-generation farm was – and continues to be – worth every tough day.
