Brooke Snyder is a strong advocate of the Future Farmers of America (FFA)
Throughout high school Brooke was very involved in FFA (Future Farmers of America) and 4H, Brooke accepted multiple opportunities to travel to local, state, and national FFA events to share her love for the agricultural industry. Now an alumnus, Brooke remains a strong supporter of FFA activities.
Brooke decided to further her education in the ag industry by going to the University of Wyoming and studying Animal Science. During her time at the University of Wyoming, Brooke was involved in the Wyoming Collegiate Cattlemen's Association. In these organizations she was able to learn many different life skills that she still uses to this day. Her family raises commercial mother cows and consequently also raise hay every year to sustain their herd. She has her own small herd of mother cows.
The Snyder's family outfitting business is based out of the Rifle to New Castle area, where Brooke has spent many fall days assisting her parents during hunting season. Not only does Brooke have knowledge about livestock, but she also has knowledge on habitat improvement and management of wildlife within the state of Colorado.
