Spreading the Ag. Love...

This week my Livestock Evaluation class visited Little Creek Farms near Starkville, MS. Dr. Davis was kind enough to give us a run down on his cattle operation and answer our questions! LCF started in 1992 and they raise Fleckvieh-Simmental and Red Angus cattle. They primarily sell their offspring as either bulls or replacement heifers to other producers. The students had researched Dr. Davis' operation on the LCF website prior to our trip and had prepared questions. My favorite question of the day was this: "What advice would you give to a young person wanting to get started in the cattle industry today?" Dr. Davis replied with, "Buy the best cows you can find, buy fewer of them, and then grow within".
Big thanks to Dr. Davis and Little Creek Farms for allowing our class to come out and visit! It truly meant a lot to the students and myself!
