Chris and Krista Earl started CK6 Consulting in 2008 with their children Trenton, Jordan, Garrett, Sydney, Makenna and Cade. One of seven children of John and Mary Pat Earl, Chris got his passion for the cattle business from his grandfather's ranch in Southern Arizona.  Born and raised in Illinois, he played college football at Western Illinois University until 1989 when he accepted the herdsman job at Sunny Valley Farm in Yorkville, IL. He considers the first three years at SVF the greatest teaching he ever received.  Driven by the constant call of the Holy Spirit to serve people, Chris and his partner Wes currently maintain a large client list that keeps them active and sacrificial to the needs of those clients.  A deep desire to compete in the free market with genetics and effort, their service continues to show results for their clients. Chris, his wife, and two sons currently own and operate Reverse Rocking R Ranch in Maxwell, NM while at the same time covering hundreds of thousands of miles to serve the needs of their valued clients. Chris and Krista have many grand children and consider them their current passion in life. A Catholic Conservative with a desire to meet God's call is his simple goal.
