Bruce "Butch" Gillespie and his wife, Doreen, ranch in the Kevin and Ethridge area. They take great pride in caring for the land. For many years, they have raised calves to sell to youth for show projects in 4-H, FFA, and Junior Livestock Programs. They enjoy being a part of the next generation's success in agriculture and beyond.

Butch has always been very active in the community. Whether it be 4-H committees, livestock associations, school boards - Butch always makes time to be proactive in supporting the local community. Knowledgeable, patient and kind, Butch always has a way with words. He seeks to gain knowledge and information, not by talking- but by listening. If Butch has an opinion, well you can be for certain that he has done his research on the matter. That doesn't mean that he's not open to new ideas, though. He's always up for a good discussion or visit.

There's always ways to make things better. Working together - Great things can be accomplished.
