As manager of McWherter Farms, Patterson Freeman is passionate about the growth and development of a large Angus cattle operation first envisioned by the late Tennessee Gov. Ned Ray McWherter. McWherter was a strong advocate for agriculture, but his dedication to a life of public service and business kept him from seeing his plans for a large cattle operation in his hometown come to life. Today, Patterson Freeman has turned McWherter’s dream into a reality with a herd of more than 300 Angus cattle in Dresden, Tenn. In this episode, Freeman shares details about the Angus, a breed of black beef cattle that originated in northeastern Scotland, and provides a glimpse into the life of a modern cowboy.
