My name is Emmy Arnold and I am 18 years old. I am currently enrolled at Utah State University in Logan Utah and I am majoring in Agriculture Education. When I graduate, I hope to become an Ag. Teacher, as well as continue the family farm. I have lived on a Pig farm my whole life! I always loved (and still love) helping my dad and grandpa out on the family farm. When I was eight years old, I started showing pigs with the 4-H program and fell in love! When I started High school I became involved in the FFA program, where I was the Historian my Junior year and the President my Senior year.
My name is Hanna Christensen. I live in Hurricane Utah; I am a senior at Hurricane High. I am 18 years old. I have raise pork, participated in the local rodeos and parades. I have helped run a booth at the local fair for the pork producers. After High School I plan to go to Dixie State College. One of my goals is to have a summer equestrian camp for disabled children.
My name is David Gross. I currently live in Davis Country. I am 22 years old and I have been involved in agriculture most of my life. I have shown in both the 4-H and FFA organizations. This experience has taught me great life skills to make me who I am today. I have raised and shown almost every farm animal throughout my experience. My projects have included, Registered Black Angus, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens and most importantly hogs. I am currently attending Weber State University and will be transferring to Utah State University to continue my studies towards a degree in Animal Science.
