After growing up on a hog farm, life on a grain farm seems pretty simple. Back then, everything Leslie did had to wait until chores were done all 365 days a year including Christmas, birthday parties and sports events. Now her work is more seasonal and dependent on the weather. Leslie and her husband, Ken, farm about 1200 acres of irrigated and dryland corn and soybeans near Shickley, Nebraska. This keeps them busy from early spring to late fall, but also gives them time to spend with our family and nine grandchildren. Through most of the year, Leslie is the support staff, helping in any way she can. At harvest time she runs the combine. When they are not busy on the farm, they like to travel and attend meetings and conferences relating to farming. Her family lives on their land, drinks water from their well, and are good stewards of the land that supports them. They care about safety for themselves, her family and for the food they raise on their family farm.
