Bud Lovitt, who has served as manager of L&L Farms Cattle operation for the past 31 years, celebrated his retirement with a reception at the company offices on Thursday. Lovitt began working for L&L Farms, helping show the farm’s Santa Gertrudis cattle, in 1981. Lovitt worked his way up to manager and was responsible for overseeing the operation’s cattle, land and rental properties, according to his wife Margie Lovitt. Blake Evans, CEO of L&L Farms and grandson of founder Lloyd Peterson, gave a short speech at the reception, thanking Lovitt for his years of service and recalling fond memories. Lovitt said he is looking forward to spending more time with his wife and family. “He loved his job; there’s no doubt about it,” said his wife Margie Lovitt. “We’re looking forward to spending more time together.”
