These next generation farmers are as comfortable clamoring over big corn chopping machines as most kids their age are playing with Legos. Baler (left), 2, and Diesel, 4, are the sons of Kamron and Tracy Reidhead of Holbrook, and are fourth generation farmers and ranchers. Great-Grandpa Doy Reidhead ranched and farmed around Holbrook and worked alongside his son, Mike, who now runs the family agricultural and cattle operations along with his own sons. The littlest Reidhead boys look to be following in the family tradition. When big brother Hesston, 6, headed off to kindergarten last fall, Baler proclaimed, “I’m going to farm school.” The boys also have a sister, Kallee, 11.
