I wouldn’t on the blog for someone I don’t know and Francis is no exception.  He runs one of the state’s foremost grass-based dairies, has a great history of thinking AND doing.  He has B.A. degrees in music and philosophy. and a Ph.D. in agronomy.  He’s worked for the USDA as a soil scientist, received numerous awards and most importantly, is a farmer in more than name only.
