OFI 1831: Brahman Cattle, Mentors And An American Star Finalist | FFA SAE Edition | Callie Welty | Grandview High School FFA
Callie Welty is a 2023 American Star Farmer Finalist, and after speaking with her it is not hard to understand why.
Callie has had three things ingrained into her since a young age; love of the FFA, love of Brahman cattle and love for the Texas A&M Aggies. Today, at age 19 she has become the president of the American Junior Brahmans Association, she is studying agricultural communications in College Station and the foundation of the SAE that has led her to be an American Star Finalist is her herd of Brahman cattle.
In the interview Callie talks a lot about how mentors have played an important role in her development as a student, student leader and breeder of cattle. It is a point that should be emphasized as too many people try to go it alone when there are experienced people that are more than willing to give advice and share life experiences. Callie is doing great things with the help of these mentors, and it shines through in her interview.
