Peterson interns for Roundup
Joining the team from central Nebraska, Savannah Peterson is the new intern for the Wyoming Livestock Roundup.
Peterson is a current student at Casper College where she is studying agriculture communications and animal science. While she is at Casper College, she is a member of the livestock judging team.
Peterson developed her passion for agriculture on her family’s fifth generation farm and ranch. From an early age, Peterson could be found in a mineral tub while her family was working cattle. If not found there, she was probably taking a nap in the planter or combine in the field. Peterson spent many hours working cows and planting corn and soybeans by the time she graduated high school.
Becoming active in 4-H and FFA at a young age, Peterson enjoyed the challenges county and state fair brought. From her first bucket calf to her last champion market hog, Peterson enjoyed being in the show ring. Still, she found time to compete in other activities these organizations offered. She represented her county and state at many national events for livestock judging, meats judging and Skill-a-thon.
All of these activities taught Peterson how to become involved – and stay involved – in agriculture.
“I am so excited to be interning at the Roundup this summer because I love sharing the story of agriculture with others,” said Peterson.
While Peterson is heavily involved in agriculture in Nebraska, she looks forward to learning more about Wyoming agriculture.
“When I moved to Wyoming for school, I wanted to become more involved in Wyoming agriculture,” explained Peterson. “Growing up in the industry, I was very passionate about agriculture, and I always want to learn more.”
