Raised northwest of Freedom, OK, on his family's registered Line-1 Hereford ranch, Clint learned to appreciate the beauty of the rugged landscape, but also that the precious rainfall in this region could be very unreliable. Living on a ranch along the state highway 20 miles from the nearest town also taught him to help people, as there seemed to always be someone in need of gas, or water, or help with a flat tire. In 1989, Clint married his high school sweetheart, Sheri, a farm girl from neighboring Protection, KS. They have raised their four children, and now enjoy as much time as possible with their two grandchildren. Clint helps his mother as she continues to operate Darnell Hereford Ranch and also helps his father-in-law on his commercial cattle and farming operation, but his true passion is helping the people in agriculture manage their risks and try to remain profitable in the ever changing farm economy.
