Peter Named Wisconsin Star Farmer

June 16, 2022 Star Award

Brayden Peter of the Howards Grove FFA is a Wisconsin Star Farmer.

The Star Farmer Award recognizes students in production agriculture working with entrepreneurship programs, ranging from animals to crops.

Brayden raises breeding and market show pigs on his family farm, Peter Family Show Pigs. He currently owns both sows and boars. Brayden has invested in improving the genetics of his show pigs and has seen this pay off at a variety of shows, including the Wisconsin State Fair. Beyond care and management of his herd, Brayden has learned about identifying when and how to give medications and managing breeding through artificial insemination. 

Brayden plans to become a livestock nutritionist and will major in Animal Science at UW-Platteville, with a minor in agribusiness. 

Brayden’s parents are Bob and Nicole Peter. His advisor is Ms. Makayla Malone.
