Maynard Cress

Though Maynard Cress has had plenty of time on tractors and herding cattle, his life is replete with a multitude of interests and activities.

As a farm kid, he got his first horse at age 6. At 14, he bought a new tractor for $785, and rented 80 acres to grow wheat, milo and corn — before soybeans had a presence.

At Humboldt High he played football — a year at quarterback — and basketball, but skipped track and baseball “because spring was time to farm.” He’s always found sports captivating, as participant and spectator, and seldom misses a Humboldt game.
