OFI 1826: Returning To The Show As An American Star Farmer Finalist | FFA SAE Edition | Tanner Mickey | Taylorville High School FFA
Tanner Mickey is a 2023 finalist for the award of American Star Farmer! He has done this through a variety of enterprises including corn, soybean and wheat farming; raising cattle and sheep; and working in his families seed sales business.
Tanner was first a guest on the show in 2019 as he was getting ready to start his senior year of high school. We did the interview one day prior to him leaving for Scotland with his livestock judging team to compete internationally. He was also just a few months away from becoming the Illinois State Star Farmer at that point.
I am very proud of what he has already accomplished and that he has been recognized as an American Star Farmer Finalist this year. We will catch up on everything he has been doing over the past four years on this episode.
