Grant with Betty

This photo is one of my favorites, it’s from the Fall of 2001. My son, Grant, is now 22 years old and a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. He still loves cattle and is planning to milk cows after he graduates in May with his Animal Science degree. And the heifer calf he’s with in the photo is still around. She’s now a cow named “Betty”. I’d like to think that the lessons Grant learned growing up around livestock helped shape him into the responsible young man he is today. He’s not perfect, but I couldn’t be more proud of him.
