Robert and Rachel live in Boyce, Louisiana. That’s where they farm soybeans, hay, and raise their cattle. They’ve had a tough spring planting their soybeans on their farm that’s flooded by Red River backwater. We discuss that struggle, but also how they’re finding new markets for their cattle and their plans to grow that part of their business.
