Kids in Ag

Ethan Schenk (7) and Walt Schenk(5), of Shephard, Montana, love working cattle with friends and neighbors. Here, they helped work calves on the Ballard Ranch in Lavina, Montana. Their dad is a gunsmith and mom works for USDA. "Livestock has taught them the value of life and the humbling defeat of death," says their mom, Shelia. "Experienced agricultural leaders are what we need and someday, these guys will be the ones fighting for policy and rights," Shelia adds. Photo by Shelia Schenk
