Connor Pence won the National Proficiency Award in Goat Production in 2021, and I could have easily titled this episode "how to win a national proficiency in goat production". However, when I really reflected on this interview, Connor is teaching everyone how to win a national proficiency in any category.
Yes, Connor's area of focus is goats, but it is what he has done with this focus area that is instructive to the rest of us. He doesn't just raise and sell a few goats. He has taken a very deep dive into this species, the markets for this animal and the management of this animal. I raise goats, and I found myself learning a ton from Connor during the interview, including information that I had never heard of before. Listen to this episode to get the full story.
