Relationships have always been the currency, but today, its really the "new" currency. I believe in honesty, respect, and still a hand shake.Rodney, is one of 7 children, being right in the middle and just 1 of the 6 boys, his father and mother showed the children the value of hard work and responsibility at an early age. Being raised on a farm and ranch, Rodney knows the value of getting up early, from collecting eggs to picking sweet corn all before breakfast and school. From learning how to set dikes without water and of course with water, shovel work, irrigation tubes, bucking hay, and there was always cattle work to do. Working all kinds of hours from baleing hay at 2-3am in the morning or getting picked up after school to delivery hay to horse barns.
