Portrait of Nicole-2

Nicole raised livestock at Antelope Valley High School, specifically steers and heifers. Although she was a student at California State University Bakersfield (CSUB), she didn’t consider raising livestock as a hobby, “I just like raising steers in general because it’s a fun project to do. I want to be an exotic animal trainer.”

Nicole raised steer for the Antelope Valley Fair. She was part of Future Farmers of America (FFA) and had participated in these activities for four years, she was going on her fifth year. Nicole was quite successful at raising livestock for the fair evidenced by her winning Grand Champion in 2016 and Reserve Champion in 2017.
