In life, it takes a village to get anywhere and in agriculture, it is even truer. Teams are essential whether on a family farm or working in a large corporation. Teams matter whether you are raising a herd of cattle, a family, creating a product or communicating your message.
I recently met a woman who I have great respect for and can now call a friend. She is a woman. She is a mother. She is a mentor. She is a leader. She is the president of a very large organization. She is following her passions and dreams. She is changing the world.
