Lawrence feels he got a lot of his education before going off to
college! He was raised on and later operated a crop/livestock farm
in southwest Iowa. In the early '80s he was a herdsman on a
300-sow feeder pig operation.
Lawrence "supplemented" his education by attending Iowa State University
and University of Missouri. In 1989 he earned a degree in
Agricultural Economics from University of Missouri.
