Joy Beam

“Thank you VERY much for supporting my education! This will enable me to participate in other extracurricular activities that I otherwise would not have been able to be a part of.”

Hometown: Elverson, PA

School: Pennsylvania State University

Major / Species: Animal Sciences with Minor in Agribusiness Management, Agronomy

Career Goals: 

My number one career goal is to one day go back to my family’s farm to help manage our cattle feedlot, farrow-to-finish hog operation, and crop land.   I hope to work with my siblings in expanding the sow herd to the point where we can contract farmers under us to raise our finishing hogs.  However, in the first couple of years out of school, my goal is to work in the agronomy field in a position where I can help farmers increase their crop production.
