SAE Project: I started my Supervised Agricultural Experience my freshman year of high school. My SAE is established on Swine Production. Within my operation I purchase, raise, and artificially inseminate high quality swine. The progeny I produced is mostly market to the show pig industry, and utilized for local kids in the community so they have the opportunity to show quality and affordable livestock. While show pigs are a huge part of my operation, I also produce market hogs, which are sold at weaning weight to farms in the community and purebred seed stock to other swine producers.

Favorite CDE or LDE: My favorite CDE would have to be livestock judging. I started livestock judging when I was only 9 years old and over the years with a lot of time, work, and dedication I was able to enhance my critical thinking and public speaking skills. Livestock judging has not only given me the opportunity to make many amazing connections, but its also taught me the importance of hard work.

Favorite FFA Memory: My all time favorite FFA Memory would have to be the day I received my very first FFA jacket.

Future Plans: After my year of service I plan to attend Black Hawk East College in Illinois on a livestock judging scholarship. After obtaining my Associates Degree I plan on counting my education at a 4 year College. Although I have not decided a specific career I do know I would like to do something involved in the agricultural industry one day.
