Mr. LeMaster is proud to serve the livestock producers and grass farmers in Cherokee, Spartanburg, and Union. He lives on the family farm in the Grassy Pond community of Cherokee County where they background calves and raise hay and horses. He enjoys working with a variety of livestock owners from backyard poultry enthusiasts to equine farms and County Cattlemen Associations. His goal is to help his farmers stay profitable and enjoy their operations so they are able and willing to continue farming for at least another generation.
