    Author-historian Neal Hammon of Shelby County says Boone was the leader of the westward movement and his land surveys show he knew what he was doing.

  • In the middle of the 20th century, the traditional method of raising and finishing cattle on the farm gave way to a newer concept of Midwest-based feedlots that could take advantage of low priced grain and improved transportation to finish and market beef in vast quantities.

    “What is important to me is my students,” said Liddell.
