What is your current involvement in Agriculture?
My family runs a cow/calf operation and my father is in charge of all live operations for JBS pork.
What are your career goals?
Find a great company in agriculture that I can help build and achieve success while building relationships and promoting agriculture.
What attracted you to the Ag Experience Program?
I remember when I was younger and rode with my dad to our local MFA to get feed. Since that young age, I have always associated MFA with being a highly respected company within Agriculture. I worked at my local MFA this last summer and was hooked on that atmosphere and respect the company’s ideals and mission. I had heard of the MFA Ag Experience Program from Craig Evans, my ag teacher in high school. As a personal goal for the summer, I plan to further build relationships and networking with employees at MFA, build on what I have started during my previous summer in the feed division and learn more about the agronomy side of the business. This my second summer as an intern in the Ag Experience program and am working with MFA Health Track and Power Calf.
