Dr. Redden grew up on a diversified ranch in Utopia Texas. His family raised sheep, goats, and cattle. They also owned and operated a restaurant and meat packing plant. His passion for small ruminants was forged from raising and showing club lambs. This passion inspired Reid to pursue a high education in animal science with an emphasis on small ruminants.
