Visitors from JEM Angus, Iowa

One thing about the cattle industry are the many people that you meet from various parts of the country .  Yesterday, I was pleased to meet John and Emily Putney from Gladbrook, Iowa when they arrived at the farm for a visit while on a Maritime vacation.  Ironically, their herd name is JEM Angus.
