Thank you for this opportunity to continue my education! I greatly appreciate your support as I pursue my career and my passion in the animal agriculture industry! Without your support and confidence in the next generation, there would not be as many chances and opportunities for livestock enthusiasts to reach their passions and their goals. So, Thank you!
I think the career opportunities are endless. I will take a job to better myself and to learn more before I gate keep myself to only certain careers. If I had to choose where I wanted to be in 20 years, it would be a career in reproductive technology or animal nutrition. TransOva Genetics has always been a company that keeps improving animal agriculture, more specifically that of the beef, swine, and dairy world; which, in turn improves the efficiency of food animal production. I believe that being able to make a more cost efficient product while also improving the genetics of a herd is what it is going to take moving forward. I also want to be giving back to the program that gave so much to me, 4-H. After my first year of college, I began judging some local county fair livestock shows and helping the younger generations of 4-Hers learn more about their projects. This really puts into perspective how important it is for a kid to be acknowledged for the work they have done, whether they win or lose. I think it’s important for a judge to personally thank kids for wanting to be involved in animal agriculture, that is why I love being a judge at such a young age. With that being said, I want to keep my family and faith at the center of my career.
