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.”
