Mr. Hennessey farmed in Round Grove Township, McLeod County, from 1960 to 1986. Farming was his whole life and he loved tilling, planting and harvesting. He was a dedicated dairy farmer and had a passion for his livestock. He and his wife took pride in working together with field work and caring for the animals on their farm.
