Who Said That?
Florida's quote of the day
"Every job I’ve ever had has led me to this. "
For Tim Colbert and his crew at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Co., the goal is to remain as anonymous as possible. But if not for the thousands of hours of hard work they put in, the facility would quickly fall into disrepair.
“There a lot of activity that goes on behind the scenes that no one really appreciates until it’s not there,” said Tom Ventura, OBS president.
That’s why nothing is left to chance. Everything, from the placement of fire extinguishers to making sure cold water coolers are constantly filled, has been carefully thought out. And Colbert, whose official title is superintendent, is really more of a logistics expert.
“Every job I’ve ever had has led me to this. I enjoy the logistics of an operation. My dad says it’s the perfect job for me,” said Colbert, who recently completed his first year at OBS.
The work of the 13 full-time and 30 contract workers will be on display during the three-day August Yearling Sale, which runs through Thursday.
