Author: Hannah Strain

Hello, my name is Hannah Strain. I am from the small community of Elk Prairie, which is near Rolla, Missouri. Elk Prairie is full of farming families, so I have been raised around cattle my whole life. My family runs a diverse livestock operation, primarily raising commercial beef cattle and harvesting forages. I am currently majoring in agricultural education and leadership with a minor in science and agricultural communication. I have always been immensely proud to be a part of the agriculture industry. Growing up with these experiences has given me a passion for agriculture. I have grown increasingly fond of talking about agriculture and sharing my ag story through my experiences in 4-H and FFA. I hope to continue expanding my experiences and learning more about the diverse agriculture industry throughout my academic career. Ultimately, I am an enthusiastic advocate for agriculture and hope to continue that trend through my writings with the Corner Post.
