Drake: In my mind, getting experience was one of the smartest things they made us do. It gave us a different perspective. It helped us understand what a boss in another industry is going to expect from us, not just our parents. I think all of us learned a lot, and we are using what we learned today. I had never been on a feedlot, and now I know what that’s like and what they are looking for.
Corbin: My advice for the younger generation is to find what you’re good at. I am not bad with the cows, but I would rather be doing the row crop side of things.
