My Dairy Production SAE involves working on my family’s 180 cow dairy farm just outside of Arcadia. Aside from daily chores, I am able to handle much of the work with the animals, crops, and farm business wherever needed. It is my ultimate dream and goal to one day take over the family farm with my two brothers and become the fourth generation to operate it.
My favorite thing to do in winter include doing anything outdoors and playing basketball. I love to go snowmobiling, skiing, sledding, and have a snowball fight. In addition, I also love watching and playing basketball. I played basketball all four years in high school, but I also loved playing two on two against my dad and two brothers in our hay barn. That’s right, we had a basketball court in our hay barn!
In hindsight, I wish I would have attended the Washington Leadership Conference. This would have been an awesome opportunity to travel across the United States and to our nation’s capital. From the members I talked to, I’ve heard great things about it.
One goal I have for the second half of the year is to get to know even more FFA members! The connections and conversations I’ve made so far have been incredible and that has undoubtedly been my favorite part of being a state officer.
