We had a great time and great weather last Thursday at the Jeff and Chanda Case farm! The Case family fed us barbque brisket with all the trimmings! Guests learned about the life of a young family with an average Missouri beef herd (thirty cows). Jeff works off the farm, as many Missouri farmers do. Chanda cares for their two young children and works from home to bring in additional income. Jeff explained that managing his time between the farm and his off-farm employment can be challenging. Early mornings and late nights are the rule as the family works to build and improve their farm.
Guests were treated to pictures of the family and the farm as Jeff spoke about their family farming heritage.
He really emphasized their desire to provide their children with a rural upbringing, while improving the land they own. Most of the land improvements include methods to minimize soil erosion and improve forage production which also helps hold the soil, and serves as the primary feed for their cows and calves.
