A note from Catie Jones
Hello, let me give you a little background about myself. I was raised in Ocala, Florida where my family had a small operation. My extra time was spent heavily involved in 4H, FFA, and Junior Cattlemen’s Associations. After high school, I attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College for 2 years. Afterward, I transferred to The University of Florida where I attained my degree in Animal Science – Beef Cattle Production.
I am excited about working with Smith Farm Supply customers. Call to schedule consultations on beef nutrition and maintenance of your herd. In addition, I also do forage data analysis’ and tests as well as agricultural public speaking events.
My goal is to consult with farmers and ranchers on economical and profitable goals. By working with producers using quality nutrition and best management practices I am confident our customers will see positive results. Have a question on pet foods? Feel free to ask me about companion animal nutritional needs as well.
I look forward to working with you and the amazing staff at Smith Farm Supply.
