What is your involvement in agriculture?

“I show animals with 4-H and do woodworking. I’m also the vice president of the Dayton 4-H club.”

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

“I like seeing all the different places you can travel to – not just with showing but with livestock and livestock judging, stuff like that.”

What are your future plans? 

“I want to have a goat showing farm for people to show goats that may not be able to take care of them themselves.”

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

“I’ve heard this many times, but just keep going. It’ll get easier throughout.”

Awards: “For 2022, I got the junior showmanship first place at a jackpot. At the county fair, I got third place with my goat and third place with my chickens.”
