Farm Broadcaster Jessica Benson talks with Dan Byers about his successful harvesting operation as well as his up and coming direct-to-consumer meat business -- 6 Pack Meats (linked below) themed after common bodybuilding lingo.

Jessica and Dan discuss their similar passion for working out and bodybuilding, and how that mindset carries over into other facets of life like working in agriculture. Dan wakes up at 3:05 every morning and lives by the words, "How you do anything is how you do everything." 

Other than meat-head things, they discuss getting into the business of direct-to-consumer meat sales, consumer trends when it comes to purchasing direct and the importance of the H2A visa program for agriculture. They also talk about hard times building hard people and how life is ultimately what you make of it, and how we can reach the consumer world more effectively when it comes to education in ag!
