Our family had the honor of spending the afternoon yesterday at Mr. Charlie Carr's 80th birthday party. Thanks to Chad Carr and Cathy Herren Carr for planning such a wonderful event and Chad's comments to kick off the event were special. The Carr family have been special friends to four generations of Jones boys. Our family's start in the purebred livestock business was January 10, 1959 when Gordon purchased Hampshire gilts from Mr. Charlie. Alot has changed in the last 60 years but friendship last forever.
