Joe Richards, manager of Diamond Cattle Feeders, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Ag Economics at Texas A&M in 1994 and a Master of Agribusiness from Sam Houston State in 1996.
A native of Fairfield in central Texas, Joe grew up on the ranch and learned the value of hard work and spent many hours helping with his family’s livestock market at Buffalo, Texas.
Between 1996 and 2003, Joe gained necessary knowledge working in the cattle feeding industry: riding pens, doctoring cattle, calling and buying feed, selling fat cattle, and overseeing feed yards. He and his father, Burt Richards, purchased Diamond Cattle Feeders, Inc. in 2003.
Diamond is built on personal service, a hands-on comprehension of the industry, diligence and a substantial client base throughout Texas and the U.S.
Joe and his wife, Brandi, live in Hereford and are the parents of two daughters, Madalyn and Lucy.
