I'm currently finishing my degree in Sustainable Food Systems at MSU-Bozeman. I was raised on a ranch with cattle, sheep, and hogs in Eastern Montana. I was previously working for Amaltheia Dairy taking care of the hogs and goats. This summer I will be interning with Black Dog Farm in Livingston to gain more experience with pasture management.

Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.

I plan on running a pastured-based poultry, egg, pig, and lamb operation. Long-term I would like to develop a small grass-based dairy, and possibly grow some specialty crops.

Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.

I don't plan on becoming certified organic, but I would like to mostly use organic practices. I plan on basing my management on agroecological principles and using management-intensive grazing, but I am not opposed to most conventional practices occasionally.
