My passion for the field of agriculture started in my small hometown of Owensville, Missouri. I grew up raising Simmental cattle along with showing market steers and Boer meat goats. This love flourished more when I joined my local 4-H and eventually the National FFA Organization. Even from a young age, I learned from my farm, parents and the world around me that agriculture was something I desired to be involved with. This childhood adoration has evolved into a passionate pursuit to advocate for and invest in the industry that I love so dearly.
