Brooke works at two dairy farms and has five oxen of her own, which she shows at the Tunbridge Fair. “Brooke is passionate about organic dairy and working with her animals,” wrote agricultural technology teacher, Matthew Dragon, about why he nominated her for this award. “When she finds out about new breeds or markets, she researches them and alters her plans accordingly.
