Blair Schnarre, CHS sophomore, has been chosen for the September SAE spotlight. Her parents are Darin and Christy Schnarre.
Schnarre spends her time involved in FFA. She enjoys this club because it allows her to be able to work on other interests. “This way I can focus on my SAE and showing livestock,” said Schnarre. She also spends her time working on her family farm.
For her SAE, Schnarre owns a small herd of registered Angus heifers that she breeds, shows or sells the calves. She also shows her paint horse and crossbred pigs. Throughout her life, Schnarre said she has, “ I’ve always watched my older siblings show livestock. I wanted to follow in their footsteps,” which influenced her to choose this for her SAE.
Schnarre explains learning responsibility and learning how to solve real life problems are main benefits to the process. Schnarre’s favorite part of her SAE is learning new things, meeting new people, and seeing all her hard work pay off. She faces challenges such as working hard and animals getting sick or injured, which sets her back. Schnarre gains her support from her parents and siblings.They push her to do her best, and teach her everything they know.
Schnarre plans to go to college after highschool, get a degree in Agriculture, and return to her family farm to work.
