Description

Yes, it is true I have been involved with alfalfa for 60 years and then some. Fact is I was fortunate enough to pick the World's best forage on which to base much of my career about the same time I fell in love with and married the best lady I ever knew. Betty has stuck with me through these crazy wonderful years. She was largely responsible for matters at home and raising the family. She managed our family and home while I was on the move trying to encourage maybe even coerce farmers in Kentucky and then over the USA to grow alfalfa and to improve their pastures and make both enterprises profitable. Thank you and your predecessors who have made this mission fun and satisfying. It's been a great 'ride'.
