VON ORMY- We are the Future Farmers of America! We wake up before the sun and go to bed after it’s long gone. Our work is never done, we will always have a brush, quirp, or feed bucket in our hands. Our free time is spent preparing for the all the stock shows. When we get home at the end of the day, we don’t smell the best but, we wear it like our cologne. We prepare for this moment all year long! The adrenalin is running out hearts are pounding, just waiting for the judge to point at you. When he does the crowd cheers and all your worries fade away, you have won! All the hard work and dedication has paid off.
