DeWitt Central FFA
My SAE is Beef Production Management I work for Kurt and Kendal Claeys on their family farm. I got the job through a friend of mine who worked for them got me the job working part time during the summer of 2017. Then he went off to college I got their full time position as their farm hand. At the farm I have learned to do lots of things such as drive tractors and heavy equipment as well as care and work with cattle. Working for the Claeys I have fixed and built fence, moved and worked cattle, and much more. My favorite part of my SAE is there's constantly something different to do and work on at the farm.

The thing I love most about FFA is that it's not all about if you grew up on a farm or if you have started with agricultural ties. People from all sorts of backgrounds meet and become best friends through their new found passions for agriculture. I love when people from completely different places seem to find something they have in common and build an amazing friendship over it.
