Author: Allie Lock

I am a proud fourth-generation cattle rancher, a first-generation Mizzou student, a lifelong advocate for agriculture, and this semesterI will be one of your writers for the CAFNR Corner Post. My name is Alexandria Lock, better known as Allie, and I am currently a freshman at the University of Missouri, studying agribusiness management. When I’m not at Mizzou, you can find me in one of two places. The first is in my hometown of Carrollton, Missouri, where I spend my time traveling down back roads, flipping through books, and helping my dad on the farm. Our family farm is where my passion for agriculture started. As a little girl, my legs and my curiosity always ran rampant when my dad and I pulled up to the green, grassy fields spotted with cattle. From the time I could talk, I think I was asking questions. This search for answers has steadily become all-encompassing over time, as well as my passion for agriculture. This year at Mizzou I hope to dive into many different organizations, including the CAFNR Corner Post. I can’t wait for you to follow along in my search for answers to life’s everyday questions here in Columbia, Missouri. MIZ!
