Ben Randle is general manager at GDW Farms LLC, which is a turkey farm.  After a career as an electrician, Ben took on a new role as a farmer, where he helps raise turkeys from one-day to 20-weeks old.  In Hamilton, he’s the assistant basketball coach and school board president.  He and his wife have one high school senior and three kids in college.  (All four next year!)  He loves hunting, kayaking, and never sitting still.

Listen as Ben talks about:  

  • How 20-week old turkeys are like ornery 18-year-old boys
  • Why he became a part of the school board
  • How he can control 28 buildings from his phone – especially useful at 2:00 a.m. in February
  • Antibiotics, marketing, the attack on protein, and how to best care for animals
  • Vacations with his wife, hunting with his kids, and joking about all of them
