BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - Growing up in a family of farmers is something that Falls County Farmer Dawson Herring says he couldn’t imagine not being a part of.

“I don’t know what else I’d be doing. I wouldn’t want to sit in the office all day,” said Herring.

Farming has been a part of his family for many generations, with practices being handed down throughout the years.

“Ever since I can remember, we were driving tractors before we could hold the seat down. My dad and grandpa either farmed or ran cattle,” said Herring

Herring also credits the independence he had on the farm at such a young age that helped him develop techniques he is still using now.
