As a boy, he kept busy working in the large family garden, caring for animals, milking cows, selling cream. His early education was at Blue Hills School, a small country school, located east of Hanley. As a young man, Lloyd participated in the 4H grain club, and attended the Saskatoon and Regina exhibitions submitting grain samples and judging livestock.
He enjoyed helping with renovations on the family home and was very handy. Lloyd enjoyed hanging out with his cousins and playing cards with the neighbourhood young men. Lloyd loved learning and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan, School of Agriculture. He worked for other farmers including his Uncle Ralph’s dairy farm near Saskatoon. He continued helping on the family farm, eventually establishing his own farm in the Hawarden area and worked closely with his brothers Glenn and Alan.
