Hometown: Clinton, NC
School: North Carolina State University
Major / Species: Animal Science & Agricultural Business (double major)
Upon graduation, I plan to begin my career with a large swine integrator. After gaining experience, I will focus on earning my way into production management. In order to gain experience I have interned the last two summers at the NC State Swine Units and Murphy-Brown Warsaw Feed Mill respectively. I would like to have as much exposure to all aspects of the business as possible. This summer I will be interning with a Murphy-Brown farrow to wean sow farm. I am not ruling out graduate school, but feel like a couple of years of farm experience will influence not only that decision but also a specialization. An additional personal goal is to operate my own livestock and crop farm.
