Collin Swedberg lives on his family’s fifth generation farm with his parents, four brothers, and one and only sister. The farm is only a couple of miles outside of North Platte, but he attended school in Wallace because he valued having agriculture classes be part of his high school education. He is majoring in Agricultural Education at UNL.
He enjoyed his high school coursework in agricultural leadership, livestock management and many other areas. As a result of the knowledge that he gained through the agriculture classes he has taken, he was able to participate in a variety of different activities that the FFA organization has to offer. Some of his favorites include livestock evaluation, parliamentary procedure, and his all-time favorite – nursery and landscape. His agriculture classes and FFA events are what interested him in pursuing his entrepreneurial vegetable production Supervised Agricultural Experience program he grows and sells produce at the local farmers market.
