“My parents and grandparents have been running a family farm since 1982; my Dad and Grandfather have built it from 57 cows to 1000 cows. My goal is to take it even further. I am happy to get to be in this program as it helps the whole farm. It is an extra pair of hands. Being a youth apprentice has helped me grow as a student and an employee. I am excited to continue in youth apprenticeship, and I would highly recommend anyone that is even thinking about doing it to take advantage of it.”
