The Best Plans Can Change
Angus Beef Bulletin
2011 kicked off some busy years for the Lawson family. That was the year daughter Kay Leigh returned full-time to the family farm and commercial cattle operation after being away at Purdue University. She joined parents Donnie and Tammy Lawson, uncle Danny Lawson and cousin Ben, who was also just returning from Purdue. The brothers began farming at the Thorntown, Ind., operation decades earlier with their parents. As the family grew, so did Lawson Farms LLC, eventually farming 3,500 acres, calving 100 cows and feeding more than 300 fat cattle annually.
