Jacob Arnold of Esmond, North Dakota recently graduated from Maddock High School. Throughout high school, Jacob was involved with 4-H, FFA and Farmers Union. The Arnold family raises Black Angus cattle and showing livestock has always been one passion for Jacob. It was a disappointment when the North Dakota State Fair was cancelled. “I had a market steer I was really excited about showing this summer,” he says. “I’ve put a lot of money, time and commitment in general into my project. Everyone who shows livestock puts a lot of effort into preparing their animals for the show season.” Hear more from Jacob in this Parade of Champions interview. This Red River Farm Network effort is made possible by AgCountry Farm Credit Services, NDFB, Minnesota Farmers Union, Minnesota Corn Growers Association, North Dakota Grain Growers Association and Association Milk Producers, Incorporated.
