JFCA Monthly Message
Hello everyone! Is everyone ready for convention?? I know the team and I are very excited about the activities we have planned for you!
We recently had the very exciting opportunity to tour Quincey Cattle Company and Usher Land and Timber. We were able to learn the history of each company and how they run their operations. Several different staff members of Quincey cattle company showed us different parts of the ranch which included the feedlots, feeding system, and their neat computer system that allows them to keep track of all their shipments and feeding rations. Mr. Ken Griner, upcoming president of the FCA and owner of Usher Land and Timber, took the time out of his busy schedule to educate us on the timber industry. Growing up with cattle many of us did not know much about the timber industry and it was really interesting to learn about another important part of the agriculture industry. I would like to thank the Johnson family for opening their home to us for the weekend.
