I grew up with chickens and horses and actively participated in FFA and 4-H. In high school, my family switched from horses to alpacas. I earned a B.S. in Agricultural Business and worked for five years as a veterinary technician before becoming an AOBA alpaca judge. My husband and I recently purchased our first farm, which we’re now in the process of transforming into a sheep and poultry operation. Although we both grew up in agriculture, we have discovered that we don’t know half of what we thought we did! Every day is a new learning experience.
