OFI 1553: Driving Combine, Butchering Meat And "Super Trucking" | FFA SAE Edition | Will Harman | Benton Central Jr./Sr. High School FFA
Will Harman is a 2022 National Proficiency Finalist in the category of Beef Production. Will farms with his family in Northwest Indiana where they grow corn and soybeans as well as raise cattle. The families cattle herd began with show animals for 4H, but as time went on and Will and his brother Ben were showing less, it turned into a direct marketing beef business.
Will's older brother Ben was a guest on the Off-Farm Income Podcast in 2018 in episode #518. Today he is a senior in college, and Will is in his first semester of college. Will is studying agricultural business with a minor in animal science at Purdue. He is looking forward to a future of returning to the family farm, if that is possible. He joked in the interview that if he does that he will have to learn to drive a semi and become a "super trucker". Ben is also interested in becoming a butcher, and he is currently doing everything he can to get exposure to that profession.
