Next guest post of the day is from Tyler Leonhard. We really like KLA, beef and the YSA!
Growing up in rural Kansas can be mistaken for a slow and boring life. Without agriculture, beef in particular, and pride, monotony would be a sufficient word to describe any small town. I have worked for friends and family in many sectors of the beef industry. Whether it be ten below riding pens or blistering hot throwing hay, i have found pride and satisfaction in working with animals. My family shares this passion as we have all been involved in production agriculture and will continue to do so. The Young Stockmans Academy has been an excellent experience. Beyond the relationships and friendships forged, being exposed to different styles of agriculture and using those tools to move forward have proved to be valuable. In addition to practices i have observed, i have also bettered my networking abilities and continually reference my experiences in YSA in daily business. I love agriculture and the people in it because there are hundreds of ways to accomplish the same goal, and rarely is there one "perfect" way.
