I’m Dan Isom. Ever since my childhood, I’ve had a deep passion for the field of agriculture. Using our land and animals to produce necessary goods for our world is something special. I’ve been raised working with pigs, and have grown to love it. This is why I’m very grateful for the opportunity to serve as a Youth Pork Ambassador for 2019.
Hi! My name is Taybree Ballard and I am a UPPA Youth Pork Ambassador! Farming has been a part of me for my whole life and it is deeply rooted in my heart. I actively serve in student leadership positions and love to be involved. I enjoy four-wheeling, cliff-diving, boating, skiing, stargazing, and basically anything outdoors. I play the piano and have for 11.5 years! I am proud to be a member of this years’ Youth Pork Ambassadors!
I’m Jordan Collings and I am very honored to be a 2019 UPPA Youth Pork Ambassador! Agriculture is a big part of my life and holds a special place in my heart. I’m a 10 year 4-H member. I have been raising and showing Market Hogs since the third grade. My time raising and showing Market Hogs has taught me important life lessons. My other 4-H projects are: Horse, Market Goats, Photography, Leather working, and Teen Council. I am actively involved in FFA as the 2018-2019 Beaver Chapter Reporter. My FFA SAE’s are Market Hogs and Goats. I enjoy competitive swimming, playing the violin, and working as a lifeguard. I am excited to be a representative for the pork industry as a Youth Pork Ambassador for 2019!
