What is your involvement in agriculture? 

“I help my parents operate a 65-head commercial cow/calf operation, as well as operating six broiler houses. I am responsible for daily tasks such as feeding, checking water sources and putting out minerals. I am also responsible for helping in the chicken houses on the weekends during the school year and all summer. During the summer I also pick and preserve produce daily from our garden.”

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

“My favorite part of the agriculture industry is the connections I form with people in the agriculture industry throughout the U.S.”

What are your future plans? 

“I plan on attending college and pursuing a degree in nursing with a minor in agriculture leadership.”
