The President's Bio:

"I was born in Bisbee, AZ and my great grandparents homesteaded just West of Naco, AZ in 1896. Since then we have been raising beef cattle. For the last 30 years we have been raising crossbred cattle. We use red and black Angus bulls. My wife, JoBeth and I have been married 45 years. I met her at Northern Arizona University (NAU) in 1973. We have three sons, two daughter-in-laws and two grandsons. 

I have been active in the Hereford NRCD trying to get more funding for brush management and Grassland restoration. I became President of CGCGA this year and it is an honor for me to be here. My goal is to keep our members abreast of what's happening in the beef industry - good or bad."
