People frequently asked Ken for advice. With all his experience he could quickly asses the situation, and easily see a solution.
The real problem for Ken was stating the solution in a way it could be heard – either the solution was complex or the solution was painful for the questioner.
The best example was when a young farmer asked Ken why his pigs were not doing well. Ken said, ” Well, pigs like to dig in the shade and you have them in full sun with no shed or shade on soil that is as hard as concrete.” And this was the farmer who came up with the phrase, “Ken Keppers, Master of Diplomacy.”
