What is your involvement in agriculture?
“My involvement in agriculture is living on a small farm outside of town, where we have a diversified livestock operation, which includes crossbred sheep and exotic animals. I am a current FFA member and love going to as many activities and conference as I can. Agriculture has been a part of my life since I was born.“

What is your favorite part of being involved in agriculture?
“My favorite part is most definitely gaining new experiences and meeting new people. If agriculture weren’t a part of my life, I wouldn’t know near as much as I know now.”

What are your future plans?
“My future plans are to get a degree in zoology, which has also always been a part of my life, I love learning new things about animals that I didn’t know before. I’ve always been around different species of animals and I would just like to pursue that.”

What is the best advice about agriculture you have received? Who gave you that advice?
“The best advice I have ever gotten about agriculture is that you should get as many experiences as you can and don’t be scared to try something new; you never know what the outcome maybe. This advice not only came from my former agriculture advisor, Kim Wheeler, but also from my parents. I would also just like to thank them for pushing me and giving all of the great advice they have.”
