How does a young farmer get started in raising animals? We talked with Michigan farmer Brian Plank, who raises beef cattle for youth projects, and auctioneer Bill Sheridan to learn more.

The Q&A included:

  • What’s the most important thing for maintaining animal care?
  • What do cows eat?
  • What do these businessmen hope a young person learns from raising animals?
  • How long does it take to learn an auctioneer’s chant?
  • What makes Michigan’s farm community so unique?
  • What’s the most rewarding part of this particular agricultural business?
