Cattle Field Day: Mayberry Ranch

Mayberry Cattle Ranch

The Mayberry Family is fostering income from their natural resources by raising cattle. This farm family resides in the small town of Shuqualak pronounced “sugar lock.” This name was derived from the Choctaw language meaning “beads.” The principal operators of the farm are Ian (fourteen) and Zoe (nine).

According to their dad, Chris, “We have been operating Mayberry Cattle Ranch slightly over eight years.” Chris reiterated, “this venture has provided an opportunity for the family to bond and teach our children good work ethics. We received nine heifers through theWinston County Self Help’s Heifer Program.”  Also, the Mayberry Family participates in programs through the FarmService Agency, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and extension.

If you are considering starting an agricultural entity, then you should make plans to attend this educational field day. You will have the opportunity to speak with resource providers and veteran farmers. Allen McReynolds, WCSHC, said “This event will feature a young family investing in rural America. This is good news because the National Agricultural Statistic Service’s 2022 farm census indicated the farming population has grown older.” 

Be on time; spaces will fill up quickly.

Please bring your personal sitting chair.
