Headed to Brazil for two weeks with the U.S. Grains Council and National FFA Organization for the I-CAL Program! I can’t wait to learn about their agriculture industry and culture!! I will try to keep updates here but most of the news about my journey there will be posted upon my return! See you in two weeks USA!


In January of this year I was blessed to be featured on the Young Dairyman’s page of the Hoard’s Dairyman (HD) Magazine. It was only possible because of the amazing internship I had at Maddox Dairy, because I met the Managing Editor, Corey Geiger, of Hoard’s Dairyman while attending the National FFA New Century Farmer Conference in Iowa, and lastly because Chelsey Johnson, last years HD Intern was a fellow SDSU Jackrabbit. Thank you all!!  I was also recently given a copy of the HD in Japanese, in their April publication my story was featured!  Goes to show just how international agriculture truly is.  The picture above is only one page of the column in Japanese, the article in English took one page, but in Japanese it took a few!
