1.) Why FFA?:
I am involved in FFA because it is fun, and, being an officer, we get to be in charge and make decisions.
2.) FFA project:
Cattle are my SAE project. We raise them from newborn calves to about 500-pounds calves that are weaned. I like being around cattle and they are fun to raise.
3.) I've learned:
I have learned a lot about soils and being an officer I have learned about how the decisions we make affect others.
4.) Career path:
I will be involved in agriculture of some kind, but at this point I don't know what yet. I enjoy agriculture and FFA has given me more information about the different opportunities that are out there.
By taking more classes in school and helping my dad around the farm, I am figuring out what I want to be involved in and what direction I will plan on going.
5.) College plans:
I will probably go to Iowa State University, but at this point I haven't made my mind up yet. It will be somewhere that has ag-related fields.
6.) FFA activities:
I have been involved in many local chapter activities like attending meetings, fruit sales, taking money at the chili-oyster stew supper, keeping SAE records, being sold and taking money at the Member Service Auction, attending State FFA Convention, and I was on the district and state soils team in 2013. In 2014 I was a member of the Farm Business Management Team.
