Don was raised on a farm in south central Nebraska. Born at the end of the Great Depression the family farm was like most farms. There were cattle, hogs, milk cows, and chickens. Every farm had a large garden where they raised tomatoes, green beans, lettuce, peas, and sweet corn. The beef that was butchered was grain fed and there was a large amount of marble, or call it fat if you will. The chickens were pullets young and tender. Most interesting was the fact that all of the animals were healthy and fat at harvest time.
The people, for the most part, were muscled and thin. There were some overweight people, but very few obese. Vegetables were canned or fresh frozen for fall, winter and spring consumption. Life was good and natural. After leaving the farm life, Don joined the Army and served for three years. Two of those years were in Japan. Following the military and college, Don has spent his career in the world of business. He has had a great career, almost a half-century in commercial broadcast, several years in real estate and more years in an investment business. He is now helping people in the food supplement business. Life is good!
