“Farming and science are one in the same on the Ready farm. My husband Sid and I farm near Scribner, Nebraska, raising corn, soybeans, alfalfa, chickens and cattle. Sid also teaches high school chemistry and college level biology at Logan View High School. I help him at school by prepping labs and discussing how to teach scientific ideas as they relate to agriculture. At the school, I am also the drama director and junior class sponsor. In between, I work at the local hardware store. Three of our children are in college and professional school and we have one grandson. Our youngest daughter is in junior high and we have two daughters awaiting us in heaven as the result of a car accident. Family is foremost in our lives and we enjoy working and playing together on the farm and off during camping and fishing trips. Our farm has been in our family since the homestead days of 1870 and we want to be sure it is here for the generations to come. I truly feel that there is no place like Nebraska.”
