What is your involvement in agriculture?

Reese’s 4-H projects include cattle and chickens. He has been a member of 4-H for eight years and has been showing cattle since he was in Fourth grade. He plans to show one heifer this year.

“I officially have five heifers. My first year I showed a Hereford-Chi cross, a blue roan Shorthorn and then I have my baby calf, Jane which is a crossbred. My first-year heifer gave another calf, but I haven’t quite named her yet,” Reese said.

Reese and his sister, Avery, own 30 Blue Red Laced Wyandotte chickens they both show at the county fairs.

What is your favorite part of agricultural?

“What I like about the farm life is that it is fun to just get out and do stuff. You can also tell other people about how important agriculture is. It is just fun because there are a lot of other people that has the same farming life,” Reese explained.

What is your favorite part about showing cattle?

“It is the people. They are really nice. I also like doing something over the summer. Everybody else just plays video games or goes on a big vacation. The best vacation I get is state fair,” Reese explained.

What are your future plans?

“My summer goal is to win showmanship at the Land O’ Lakes Youth Fair and also possibly get showmanship at state fair,” Reese said.

Reese’s long-term goals include working in law enforcement or as a conservation agent while raising Shorthorn cattle.

“Eventually I will have a Shorthorn operation. I have always loved Shorthorns. They are cute, adorable, and they can have an attitude but mainly because I won my first showmanship with a Shorthorn,” Reese explained.
