"I have been involved in the Ag industry for as long as I can remember. From a young kid working with my dad in the dairy barn, then in the hog farrow to finish operation as well the cropping side of the farm. I worked for a breeder around Coaldale AB close to six years, where I also became involved in 4H as well as Team AB WCC. After a year with DHI, I spent the past three years working in a mixed animal veterinary clinic, as well as doing relief evenings and weekend milking. I enjoy working in the field and meeting the people that make the dairy industry as great."
