#TakeOverTuesday: Nick and Cassie Wright, Preble County

Every Tuesday an Ohio Farm Bureau member takes over the Ohio Farm Bureau Instagram for the day to share a day in their life. Check in throughout the day or follow us on Instagram, @OhioFarmBureau, to meet new Ohio farmers and ag professionals every #TakeOverTuesday.

Hello! Welcome to our #TakeOverTuesday! We are Nick and Cassie Wright. We operate a small farm and cattle operation in West Alexandria, Ohio. We have about 10 head of cattle and farm almost 40 acres but also have off-the-farm jobs as well. We are small, but you have to start somewhere! We hope you enjoy this peek into our little world! . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Nick and Cassie Wright in Preble County.

The first photo is the first tractor I purchased. The second is Cassie’s grandfather’s WD-45 that he has passed down to us. Our equipment has some age, so maintenance is key. Behind it is my Cassie’s father’s hay tedder. Starting with nothing as first generation farmers, we often lean on the support of both of our families for help. . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Nick and Cassie Wright in Preble County.

“Get the most out of every wagon, every bale, every field, while preserving it for generations to come.” That’s our definition of sustainability. Like I said, we lean on our families for help. Although my dad taught me more than I can remember growing up about hard work and living a good life, I got to teach him how to run the baler. This allows me to be on the wagon while Cassie is running equipment and wagons. Like I said, it’s a family affair! . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Nick and Cassie Wright in Preble County.

I started instructing the ag program here at Brookville High School last year. It’s awesome to be teaching at the school I graduated from! I transitioned from a cattle feed salesman, so I have some industry experience to bring with me. I love my new career path and enjoy instilling passion for agriculture in the kids. . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Nick and Cassie Wright in Preble County.

“Feed the Farmers” is a new activity the Brookville FFA officer team came up with this year as a way to support the hard-working families that feed our families! Farm families and agriculture are a huge part of our community here in Brookville and the purpose of our organization is to give back to our community especially to those that support us! . . #TakeOverTuesday this week is with Nick and Cassie Wright in Preble County.
