Change is the law of life...

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are
 certain to miss the future.”- John F. Kennedy

Change is certainly the law in life. Every second, minute, hour, day, month, and year, change happens and we have to learn how to adapt to it. Change this month for me has been huge. As you can tell I haven’t been a faithful blogger and that’s really only because of my transition. As of the middle of June, I left my job as an Animal Science Extension Educator and accepted a position with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, an opportunity to further my current goals and achieve personal growth.  

Extension was a tremendous opportunity. I served the community and met the needs of agriculture producers, professionals, and the county residents. It was a pleasure working with outstanding producers in the counties. I feel that I have learned so much because of our progressive farmers and prosperous land that we have right here in our region.

Now, I enjoy working for the Secretary of Agriculture for the state of Pennsylvania. It is truly rewarding (just like Extension) seeing the “good change” and differences we can make in the lives of farmers and agriculturists.  I am excited about my change and hope to continue this blog with more stories in agriculture whether it’s through our family farm, my career, or news in the industry.

I just found your blog today and immediately bookmarked it. I'm an animal science student at Oregon State and am always looking for new sources of news. If you'd ever be interested, I would love to write a guest post for your blog someday! Feel free to check out my posts at to see if anything I would write about would fit well. Thanks!
