How many years have you shown livestock at Wisconsin State Fair?
If you could share some advice with a young showman what would it be?
It is okay to be nervous, or even frightened. Wisconsin State Fair is a time to grow, and show what you have worked on all year. Practice and be confident with your animal, and others will take notice.
What has showing livestock taught you?
Showing sheep and poultry has taught me the importance of patience. You don’t win the show on show day. Raising any animal requires care, attention and dedication all year long.
What motivates you to show at Wisconsin State Fair every year?
Showing at Wisconsin State Fair means proudly representing your county and showcasing your growth in your projects. It is inspiring to see how my entries compare to those from around the state.
What is your favorite Wisconsin State Fair memory?
My favorite memory of Wisconsin State Fair is exploring the Fairgrounds with my friends in the 4-H State Drama Company. After performing in the Youth Expo Building, we ride the Skyglider and dance at the music venues to celebrate our time together.
What is something you do every year at Wisconsin State Fair?
Every year my family goes to the Wisconsin Products Pavilion after a long day of work and enjoys the potatoes, cherries, dairy products, and of course, the FFA ice cream stand.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
In the next five years, I will be working to obtain my degree in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. I hope to build a career that uses my experiences in agriculture, hands-on activities, as well as my love of science and engineering.
