OFI 1236: Building A Cow/Calf Herd And Talking About It Live On Stage | FFA SAE Edition | Trent Petersen | Red Lodge High School FFA
As you all know I was invited to give a keynote speech at the Montana FFA Foundation's Ag Expo at Montana State University which took place two weeks ago. After the keynote, Trent Petersen, the president of the Red Lodge FFA Chapter from Red Lodge, Montana joined me on stage for his and my first ever, live podcast recording. It was a blast, and I am featuring it for you here today.
Trent is a very impressive young man with a dream of running his own cow/calf herd. He is already building that herd, finding land anywhere he can in his area to put a few head of cattle, get his calves, retain his heifers and sell his steers. He has a vision of returning to the classroom in the future as an FFA Advisor, and this is his chosen method of creating his off-farm income to support this cattle operation that he has envisioned.
