I first had the opportunity to chat with Ray on twitter. His passion for the industry, which he loves, was quick to shine through! Later, I got the chance to meet and talk with Ray in person at the Agchat foundation conference in Nashville. We had a few good conversations and I quickly knew he was someone I wanted to know more about.
We kept in contact and less than a year from first talking with him online, Ray was gracious enough to invite me onto his family’s dairy farm in Denair, California. When I started the UsFarmGuys project, Ray was one of the first people that came to mind! His knowledge of the industry is immeasurable and his passion for social media is downright infectious!
Ray runs his family’s dairy farm with his father & brothers where they milk 500 cows. Ray is also passing on his knowledge to his young son who can often be found working side by side with his dad. Ray hopes that his passion for the industry will live on through him.
