I have loved animals since I was born. For my 1st birthday, I got my first set of goats. I joined 4-H when I was 7 years old and started showing cows when I was 9. I was determined to do everything myself. I raised my own money to purchase that 1st heifer, trailer, and supplies, and knew right away this is what I wanted to do. I have been showing ever since. Now I have my own small herd of commercial and registered cattle that I breed and pick my future show calves from and then sell the other calves to fund my cattle operation.

My name is Owen Wehrer and I will be 11 on November 30th. I am in 5th grade at Tipton Rosemark Academy. I enjoy a lot of watching and playing sports. I enjoy playing with my dog and petting our Brahman. We have 6 smooth polled red Brahman now but our bull calf has lost most of his red and is looking more gray. Our 2 calves will be halter broke soon so that we can show them. A few weeks ago I was in my first cow show and my brother and me showed Brahman that belonged to my grandfather. I won a 2nd place ribbon and 3rd place ribbon in my first show at the Delta Fair. Hopefully I can become a professional football player but if not I will try to become a professional baseball player. I want to go to an SEC college maybe Tennessee. During the off season from sports I still want to have a cattle farm. Our dad thinks we should be vets for large animals but I don't think I want to do that.
My name is Peyton Wehrer and I turn 12 on October 14th. I just started middle school this year. I have always enjoyed sports and playing with animals.

This is year 3 of building our herd and we have 6 total. Our 2 calves are not ready to show yet but we plan on showing them soon. My first show was at the Delta Fair in Memphis when I showed one of my grandfathers brahman. I really enjoy working with cattle and playing sports. My number one goal is to be a professional football or baseball player. I plan on going to the University of Tennessee for college and if I am able to become a professional athlete, during the off season I can still show cows and play with our dogs.
