Ricky was born in the little community of Binger, Oklahoma.  All his life, he has been involved in the agricultural industry.  As a boy, he worked alongside his dad raising beef cattle, peanuts, cotton, watermelons and any other cash crop they could think of. Along about 2005, Ricky started buying and distributing seed to growers and distributers in other states.  In the last 14 years, Jettco Seed has grown from supplying local farmers to include international distribution, as well.  In addition to the seed company, Ricky also farms several 100 acres of his own and continues to raise beef cattle.
