$2,500 — Cattle Farm
Because of this grant “We will be able to double our herd which in essence will double our gross farm income.” ~ Kevin Roberson
K. Roberson is planning on hosting tours on his family farm to educate children about his cow/calf operation. Kevin says, “Most children do not have an opportunity to understand where hamburger comes from.” In addition to educational opportunities for children in the community Kevin plans on participating in the county fair to educate the parents as well as the children within the community.
Expected income totals $20,300 in next 2 years.
Kevin Roberson is developing a new relationship with his local NC Cooperative Extension Agent, Keith Wood from Cherokee County.
