Santos grew up in Mexico and has worked at the site of the Alexandre Dairy since 1981, even before Blake and Stephanie bought the dairy. He “came with the dairy,” and we are sure glad he did. Santos and his wife Juana have seven kids, Humberto, Santos Jr., Emmanual, Cristian, Eric, Leslie, and Agustin who grew up on the farm learning alongside his dad and the Alexandre family how to work hard. Santos’ kids were among the best operators on the farm when they were there. Santos manages outside fieldwork including fixing fences and water troughs, putting in new water lines, and working with heifers on pasture. Without even needing a map, Santos knows where all the underground lines are where they lead to. His experience, common sense, and general wisdom regarding everything on the farm are extremely admirable to the Alexandres.
