Here is an interesting fact! These three babies (all bull calves) are full siblings. We purchased Savannah (their genetic mother) in the Hokie Harvest sale as a weanling. Her DNA tested in the top 3% of the breed in several EPD traits. We flushed her to Reserve (Genex sire) whose DNA puts him at the top of the breed, also. We put in 4 embryos of which 3 conceived. The surrogate mothers all calved in a 24 hour period last week. We look forward to watching these guys develop!!

I wish I were these steers…be able to enjoy these views every morning, watch the geese land on the pond every time, get all the feed I need without any effort, and live knowing I would provide an outstanding eating experience when I’m gone!!

Pigs are so destructive…I purchased the metal feeder (a $279 flimsy toy) from tractor supply 60 days ago prior to getting my pigs for the season. They tore it apart in 50 days! The problem is it took me 3 of those feeders before I would get off my lazy hind end and correct the problem. The local extension service provided the plans from LSU and $240 later in materials, I believe I have a feeder that is going to hold up…even though the profit margin has been hit hard this year!

He served in the European Theater as a Left Waist Gunner on the B-17 Bomber. During WWII he was involved in 50 bomber missions over Europe to include support to the Normandy Invasion. He completed his service and was discharged from the US Army Air Corps with a rank of Staff Sergeant. Following discharge, he attended Virginia Tech as a member of the Class of 1950, earning a Business Degree. His son, Dennis, also attended Virginia Tech, Class of 1983 --- and Grandson, Hunter, as a member of the Class of 2012 ---- And his Granddaughter, Rebecca, as a member of Class of 2014.

I discovered this on my road today…some call it road apples, some call it like it is…horse sh.t. But I am going to tell you it did not come out of a pony, nor did it come from a thoroughbred….Actually, I am not really sure which breed the big fella is…But I do know one fact…the steed that left this healthy monstrosity, is eating high quality SHAF hay!!

We went to the Community Easter Sunrise service in Orlean this morning.
They park in the field where I have summer pasture and had just turned some girls out. Of course all 30 were bedded in the parking area so we had to interrupt them to move them out (also had to watch our steps!). The service was very nice. We especially loved the pump organ in the back of the truck!! Happy Easter!

TODAY, SHAF’s most loyal supervisor and our favorite Hokie turns 98 years young!

He was born on a Tuesday in 1925, in the northern hills of Fauquier County, which back then was referred to as the “Free State”.

Growing up, he attended church on Sundays by way of horse and buggy. His family collected their water for cooking and bathing by walking down to the river. Yep—you read that right, he didn’t have running water until his family moved to the “big” town of Warrenton, VA when he was 12 years old.

During highschool, he flipped burgers and worked as a car hop for Frost Diner. One day a couple was so fixated on their radio they wouldn’t roll down their window to get their food. The date was December 7th 1941, the radio report that captivated their attention was the attack on Pearl Harbor—the start of WW2.

Soon after, he was drafted as the left-waist gunner on a B-17 flying 50 missions throughout Europe. Through the grace of God he would make it home.

Lucky enough to make it through the war, he attended Virginia Tech by way of the GI Bill. Starting the Hokie legacy of so many Pearsons after him.

He returned to Fauquier County with degree in hand to begin a long career of service. As Clerk of Court, he signed many marriage licenses in his time—even the marriage of famous Elizabeth Taylor!!

He raised three beautiful children with his loving wife Dorcas and today has 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren!

His legacy endures through his retirement as he continues to have a positive impact on everyone he meets.

Please share your favorite story or encounter about our star SHAF employee in the comments.

We’d love to hear your memories and we will be sure to share them with the birthday boy!

Happy Birthday Dad!!
