Curdy aims to promote higher wages, lower energy costs
When Willis Curdy was in the fifth grade, his father broke his arm on the belt used to grind grain on their family farm. For the next six weeks, Curdy took over many of his dad's farm duties.
Waking up at 5 a.m., he milked cows for two and a half hours before his mother drove him to school. He would return seven hours later, only to face more chores.
“From that I learned that success comes through hard work and long hours,” recalled Curdy, now 59.
