Hello to all. I'm from east central Illinois (don't really like to admit that). I started raising cattle in 1993. Started with one purebred Limousin cow with a heifer calf. I used AI for several years to build up my small herd of which now consists of twenty plus cows. I retired from my real job in 2006. I married my high school sweatheart right out of high school and we are still married!!! We have two grown children. We spend most of the summers riding our Harley.
