What is your involvement in agriculture?

“My sister, Mikalya, and I have seven Nubian dairy goats and two Boer cross meat goats. We also raise Angus cattle. We like to show our animals in the summer at area county fairs. I feed all of the animals daily and my sister waters them. I help give shots and help drench them when needed. Before we show them, I clip them and trim their hooves. I also do livestock judging in 4-H. We also have some pigs that we don’t show. We will breed two of them and butcher the other one. We also have around 20 chickens that we eat and sell eggs from.”

What is your favorite part of being involved in agriculture?

“My favorite part is rising my animals and showing them at my county fair. I like working with the animals; it’s fun.”

What are some of the awards you have won while showing?

“I have won the Herdsman award at the Dallas County Fair in 2016 and at the Laclede County Fair in 2017. We also won the first-ever Jerry Taylor award at the Dallas County Fair last year. I have won multiple showmanship awards at fairs over the past four years, and has the grand champion and reserve champion Nurian yearling that the 2017 Laclede County Fair.

What are your future plans? Do they include agriculture in some way?

“I would really like to expand my goat herd and have a show herd and a commercial herd. I also want to get Dorper sheep. When I go to college, I want to be an occupational therapists, but I always want to have a farm at home.”
