Entering Farmer: 20184

I am the 4th generation in our dairy farming family, having been raised on a dairy farm my whole life, and wish to carry on in that business. Our family has always rented, and I have a goal of being the first to own a farm. I want to own my own farm to pass on to my own future generations or to someone that wants to continue the legacy of farming.

I am very passionate about ag and farming. Currently milking 125 dairy cows with my dad, this farm girl isn’t afraid to work hard and get her hands dirty.
