Tennessee Producer Named Region II Vice President for Federation of State Beef Councils
Apr 06, 2020
Don has been involved in the cattle industry most of his life as a cow/calf producer, buyer, backgrounder, and market operator. He recently retired from Somerville Livestock Sales, where he managed the livestock market for the past 18 years.
“I have always had a desire to move forward in all my leadership roles, whether they have been in my personal business or serving my community or industry,” he says. “I have tried to make decisions based on facts, as well as taking into consideration the long-term effects of future situations. I have been fortunate to work in several different segments of the cattle business and that has given me a broader view and understanding of the industry. In addition, working with the state beef council has given me a greater appreciation for the people that are involved and dedicated to the research, education, and promotional aspects of our business.”
