Meet Riley Cook
Riley is a Sophomore at Tahoka and has been a Lynn County 4-Her for 9 years. Riley's five projects are Beef, Plant & Soil Science, Entrepreneurship, Photography and Leadership. "My favorite project is Plant and Soil Science. I think that will help me meet new people and 'grow' an idea on how hard business can really be and what it takes for a business to be a good business. This is something that I already know since my family farms, but my garden will give me a better understanding on why agriculture can have good years and bad years. For an example this year it was really cold and dry at the beginning of the year which will put you behind in planting and make it harder for what you planted to be able to sprout and be able to grow up to be a strong and healthy plant. Also, the prices for what ever your crop or crops can be either high or low when it's time for you to sell your crop, in this particular situation it's better for the prices to be high. It really doesn't feel good for the growers when the seed prices are higher when you buy the seed then when you go to sell your crop and the prices have dropped tremendously."
