What is your current involvement in Agriculture?
My Grandpa has had a farm with cow-calf production since my dad was born and we have always helped out and worked on weekends, summers and holidays. My parents have now moved to the farm in St. Elizabeth, MO to help my Grandpa as much as possible with everyday tasks. This is where I go now when I go "home."
What are your career goals?
I want to serve agriculture professionally, while providing for my family.
What attracted you to the Ag Experience Program?
I was attracted to the way this internship was set up to learn from real experiences. I really enjoy that I will be able to work in multiple areas of the company. I am making use of my summer in a way that will help me identify what exactly I will enjoy doing for a career. This internship is allowing me to experience more than one area of the workforce. As a personal goal for the summer, I plan to solidify an area of interest or particular type of job that I can persue as a career.
