Brooklynn Nagel, 16, from Eastman, is continuing generations of family farming in her own way.

“I don’t live on a farm, but I have a great opportunity working at Achenbach’s Hy-View Dairy Farm,” Nagel said. “Some of my daily tasks are feeding calves, treating sick calves by giving antibiotics and giving them fresh bedding. Also every year for the county fair I purchase a few pigs and lambs that I keep at my grandpa’s farm. I am responsible for caring for them and working with them to become a show animal.”

With a family rooted in the agriculture industry, Brooklyn, at the young age of 3, joined the ring, showing both pigs and lambs at fairs and specialty livestock shows. Her agricultural interest only progressed from there.
