Ron McDaniel


Ron McDaniel and his wife Nancy live in NW Arkansas, where they have 3 kids, 4 grandkids. They were also foster parents, having fostered teenagers for five years. They have horses, dogs, and just enough cattle to be in constant debt to the bank. Ron works in the Equine division for Merck Health Company and day works for area ranches. As a testament to his cowboying skills, the cow boss at Adams Cattle Company said, “Hiring Ron was like losing two good men.”Ron and Nancy actively support their church, as well as the Remount Foundation a therapeutic facility that helps our men and women returning from combat, and the CALL which is an organization in Arkansas dedicated to not only raising awareness about the need for families to take in foster children but is run by members who are foster parents themselves. Ron is truly grateful to have made his living working in the Animal Health Industry. Reciting poetry has taken him all over America, from Florida to Alaska. In 2015 he competed in the National Cowboy Poetry Rodeo (NCPR) and won the Humorous- Rising Star division. He went back to the NCPR and won the Humorous- Silver Buckle division and the Reciter Serious- Silver Buckle division. He enjoys anything that keeps him horseback, being with his family, and writing about himself in 3rd person.
