I’m convinced that change creates opportunity. We cannot be afraid of change; we should embrace it. Thanks to my father, I know the importance of taking the time to do it right the first time.

For young farmers, I recommend surrounding yourself with the best people possible. Hire the best at all levels in your company – no matter the size. Every day I believe this to be truer.
