What is your involvement in agriculture? 

“My family raises registered Angus cattle and club calves. I have also helped my grandfather grow produce on his farm that we sell at the local farmers markets. I enjoy showing cattle and am also on the Har-Ber FFA livestock judging team. This past summer I attended the Flying Cow Genetics AI School in Welch, Okla.”

What is your favorite part of being involved in agriculture/living on a farm?

“My favorite part of agriculture would definitely be the bond I make with my animals and friends and the life lessons I’ve learned along the way.”

What are your future plans? 

“After high school, I plan to attend a community college and judge livestock at the collegiate level. My future plans include getting a degree that will allow me to be an agriculture teacher and share my passion of agriculture with youth.”

What is the best advice about agriculture you have received from adults? 

“Agriculture is essential for sustaining life. My family has taught me how much of an honor it is to be able to help provide for others. Learn as much as you can as early as you can, knowledge can’t be taken away.”

Awards: 2021 National FFA Proficiency finalist in Vegetable Production Entrepreneurship/Placement.

“I will get to walk the stage at the 2021 National FFA Convention in November to see if I won.”

He is also president of the Goin’ Showin’ 4-H Club.
