Award-winning hay comes with an award-winning smile for Wyoming youth
At 13 years old, Nicholas Gutierrez not only has a winning smile, he also has winning alfalfa hay.
Farming is in his blood, or at least in his family’s heritage. Nicholas’ grandparents farmed, as did his great-grandparents, so when Nicholas’ family moved from Minnesota to Casper, Wyoming, they also bought a farm. Nicholas says, “When I was 9 years old, I got a chance to operate the machinery, and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’m just the next generation.”
