Dairy farming had always been his passion, while still in Jr High he purchased 54 Jersey Heifers and knew this would be his life’s ambition. The first farm he purchased was near St. Clairsville, he then purchased another farm near Bowerston in 1982, they became H-Tri-Co Farms, raising and milking registered Holstein’s. He and his wife, Doris, built a home on the farm near Bowerston and moved there in 1983. In 1998 he sold the Holsteins and became a beef farmer. He worked both farms until 2018, when he sold the farm in St Clairsville. Bob was a member of the Harrison Co. Farm Bureau and the former National Farmers Organization.
