I want to sincerely thank the Targeting Excellence sponsors, board, and committees for all the work that they do to make this scholarship possible! Your hard work and dedication to the youth of the agriculture industry is appreciated more than you know! Thank you again!
WWhen I graduate with my degree in animal sciences, I intend to pursue the management trainee program that Country View Family Farms offers in hog management. After gaining a few years experience in a management position and saving enough money, I plan to move out west toward Nebraska and further my career in either the swine or beef industry. I would like to pursue the beef industry straight out of school, but with the lack of beef cattle in Pennsylvania, I believe that learning the ropes with swine is the closest I can get to commercialized market livestock in this area.
