J. Hensley is still farming the land his grandfather purchased in 1962. "I love farming and I intend to be a full time farmer as soon as graduate." Jason has used his grant money to cover the costs of purchasing a new bull, as well as feed and shade cloth for this cattle operation.

Expected income from calves raised in 2005 approximately $8,800.

Because of this grant "I will continue our cattle operation buy purchasing another bull."
