What is your involvement in agriculture?
“I raise and show hogs. I also have a few head of beef cattle. My oldest brother also owns a large dairy farm that I help with. I also work on a slightly smaller dairy farm out near my house, known as Vanzyverden Dairy.”
What is your favorite part of living on a farm?
“You get to experience so many great things, as well as meet many, many people. I love the fact that we are what keeps this amazing country going.”
What are your future plans? Do they involve agriculture in some way?
“I plan to go to Cloud County Community College of Concordia, Kan., my first two years of college. After that I plan to attend Kansas State, then apply for vet school. It’s always been my dream to be a large animal vet and I plan to pursue it. I also plan on having my own swine and beef cattle operation one day later on down the road. My plans involve agriculture in many ways.”
What is the best part about living/working on a farm?
“The fact that we feed this great country. I love all the time I get to spend outside and with the animals. Often times I just go outside to talk to them instead of people. They can’t talk back, but talking to them may be more helpful. They are what makes my day exciting and keeps me going.”
