“Agriculture is such an exciting field. Whether you like science or math or history or English, there is something that fits related to agriculture. Whether you like dealing with people or you want to sit behind a desk or you want to deal with animals, the opportunities are there in agriculture. And how exciting is that? It's the outdoors and it's animals and it's crops and it's just such an exciting field to be in.  It's always changing; it's dynamic. The world relies on agriculture. We feed the world, so it's a field that's not going to go away. Sometimes you worry, oh, will this job be here in twenty years?  Oh, some form of agriculture will be there, don't worry.  It may change some, but it has to be there.”
