What is your involvement in agriculture?

“I live on a dairy farm. I help with chores, mainly feeding the baby calves. I bottle feed them with milk. They get grain and water too. We use Standout grain. I feed the older calves Calf Power grain.

“I get the cows from the barn to milk them and take them to the pens where they wait to be milked. I do whatever needs to be done.”

What is your favorite part of living on a farm?

“Spending time with the baby calves and showing them at the fair. I like lovin’ on them and spoiling them. Also, I get to name all of the calves.”

What are your future plans?

“I’d like to be a veterinarian and help farm animals in need.”

What is the best advice about agriculture you have received?

Jenna’s mother told her: “Animals have to be fed no matter what.”

Awards: In 2018, she won a herdsman award and a heifer at the Tri-County Fair in Mountain Grove.

In 2021, she won intermediate in showmanship and her heifer was grand champion heifer, Jersey at the Tri-County Fair in Mountain Grove.
