FINDING YOUR CALLING BEFORE YOU KNEW WHAT YOUR CALLING WAS, HERE IS AN INCREDIBLE YOUNG LADY WHO WAS BORN TO BE A VOICE FOR THE AGRICULTURE COMMUNITY. SHE IS A SOON TO BE RANCHERS WIFE LIVING ON THE PLAINS OF NORTHEASTERN COLORADO, PURSUING HER LOVE FOR AGRICULTURE BY BUSTING INTO THE BLOG WORLD WITH ONE OF A KIND AGVOCATE LIFESTLYE STORIES!
Katie grew up in the mountain town of Bailey, Colorado. She lived with her two loving parents and brothers. From a very young age Katie knew that the ag industry was something special and couldn't wait to be a part of it. It didn't take long for her to join the local 4-H club and begin showing livestock as well as compete on livestock judging teams!
Katie chased her dream of livestock judging until it led her to a new found home at Northeastern Junior College and Colorado State University where she would continue judging at the collegiate level.
In 2017 Katie set out to share her way of life on the ranch, she took to the blogging world to do so! What started out as a stories about ranch work, cattle and everyday tasks has morphed into a series of interviews with some of social media's most influential agvocates and #girlbosses. Whether you are looking for a read that will make you feel like you live out on the range, want to further educate your self on the agriculture industry, or connect with the amazing people of agriculture- Ag Told By Katie is the place for you!
I found Katie's Instagram account this December and had been completely amazed by her ability to tell the world more about the ag community and our way of life. You can image my surprise and complete shock when she asked to interview me for a possible feature! My jaw hit the floor!
I had no idea what to expect, I had never met this girl in my entire life and now I was about to tell her my entire life story over coffee? I was a bit nervous, but it only took two minutes into our conversation for me to truly see her for more than just a blogger! Soon we were exchanging stories on everything and anything, learning that the two of us had much more in common that our love for cattle or agriculture, and our 10 a.m. coffee turned into a three hour chat!
Just a Ranchin'
Being engaged to a rancher is no easy task. No day looks the same and each day comes with new challenges, but for Katie, she believes that is the beauty of being a rancher. I don't think she'd have it any other way! From day to day you can find her helping out with anything from feeding cattle, fixing fence, putting up hay or even going to another bull sale.
Raising cattle is not only a way of life out here, but it is also a passion that she shares with her fiancé, Joe (not pictured because he couldn't tag along for the session but fingers crossed we get some adorable couples photos next time!). Katie loves everything about raising cattle, and like most, she has a special place in her heart for calving season. Taking care of new babies is not only the best job ever but she take her assignment of writing ear tags VERY seriously.
