Jason Clay has worn many hats throughout his professional career, but perhaps none of them is more important than the one he wore as a kid growing up on a farm in Missouri.
“I grew up on less than $1 a day for 15 years as a farm kid in the U.S.,” he recalled. Growing up in rural Middle America made him a conservationist. “I hunted three days a week from the age of 7. I knew which animals to shoot and which animals to leave to reproduce so we have more in the future. You know that stuff instinctively.”
