Involvement in agriculture: Korbin is a senior at Jasper High School and has helped his stepfather Bradley Moll on the farm for the past few years. 

Korbin has recently started his own cattle herd with 12 heifers he is breeding to have a calf crop in the fall. He helps with cattle chores, working cattle, planting, harvesting and working on farm equipment. 

What he likes about living on a farm: Korbin enjoys working cattle and doing chores best because it is outdoors rather than being behind a desk.

“There is a lot of hard work that goes into it,” he said. “It’s kind of cool to see where your food comes from, be part of raising the cows and seeing them grow, then taking them to the stockyards and seeing how that process is done.” 

Involvement in 4-H and FFA: Korbin is involved in the Mount Moriah 4-H and Jasper FFA. He shows cattle through 4-H at the local fairs and was on the meat judging team this year that recently won state and made it to Nationals. The team went to Cloud’s Meats in Carthage, Mo., once a week to watch them process meat. 

“It is cool to watch the process come full circle and see how everything works,” he said. 

Korbin currently serves as the Jasper FFA treasurer and has been on the livestock and dairy cattle judging teams, as well as the soils team. He has attended the FFA National Convention three time. 

“It is a really cool experience seeing people from every state there,” he said. “It is amazing to see the massive amount of people there that have the same interest as you, but they are also from many different walks of life.” 

Advice to other young people: “There is something in agriculture for everyone whether its cows, crops or doing insurance, there’s just a lot that revolves around it,” Korbin said. “Even if you do not think it is for you, look into some other options that relate back to it. 4-H and FFA have been really good for me because I was always a shy kid and it helped me get out and meet new people. I’ve met some of my best friends through 4-H and FFA.” 

Future plans: Korbin plans to attend Crowder College in Neosho, Mo., following graduation. He is not for sure what he wants to do but he knows it will be agriculture based. Korbin said he always wants to be a part of agriculture and leans more toward the cattle side because he enjoys it most.
