Agriculture is not just a way of life. It is an industry that shapes this country and affects each person, every day. It is something that I have been around and familiar with my entire life, and has shaped me into the person I am today. I was born and raised on a small dairy farm in Billings, Missouri where my family raised and showed Brown Swiss cattle. Our farm was operational for 14 years until the economy and my dad’s health forced us to have a complete dispersal. After that, I became involved more with horses. I joined the Stars N Steeds Mounted Drill Team, as well as began showing horses at local shows. I am now a student at Missouri State University studying agricultural communications. I am involved in campus activities and organizations including MSU Equestrian Team, Delta Tau Alpha and Horsemen’s Association. I have also completed two internships- one with Congressman (now Senator) Roy Blunt and Midwest Dairy Association. Agriculture continues to be a major part of my life as I continue to broaden my knowledge about different aspects of the industry. As you can see it is what has made my past, developed my present and what molds my future. I believe it is my duty to educate the public about the importance of agriculture and continue to work to protect our farmers. New challenges and stories are developed daily. As you know, every day of our lives is an adventure; however for me, it is an “ag”venture that I wish to share giving you a perspective of life in agriculture through the eyes of a farmers daughter.

I look forward to sharing with you some of my experiences and perspectives of agriculture-related events. Please comment, and if you have a blog page as well, leave a link so I may follow you! God bless!!!!
