Our farm wasn’t a family owned business. My wife and I started our farm with only 3 cows and today calve out over 100 head, only 6 years later. Having to build our name from nothing and make our name in the industry has been no small feat, but with each year and passing show season, our brand is more and more recognized and we are beginning to become known in the industry as producing quality show and breeding stock.
Choosing the SADC to help us build our herd only made sense. An interest-free loan for a young couple starting out, certainly makes it possible both financially and logistically to get business support right here in our own backyard, from professionals who understand the industry in a rural community. They were easy to deal with and made this experience feasible for us starting our business through their expertise and guidance.
Being able to be my own boss and to truly enjoy getting up and going outside to the barn every day makes even the most difficult of days completely worth it, working towards my dream and building a business for the next generation.
