Julia Barnes is 18 years old and a recent graduate of Rex Putnam High School in Milwaukie, OR. She has been a part of the North Clackamas FFA chapter for all four years of high school and has been very successful with her numerous livestock projects. Her current enterprises include: poultry, market goats, and a breeding heifer. The poultry project includes breeding, showing, and selling ducks and bantam chickens. She created her own website from which she sells and ships hatching eggs and birds. Annually, she raises a market goat to show at jackpot shows and the Clackamas County Fair. Her newest project is a breeding heifer that she is leasing from her school land lab that she is in the process of training with the goal of showing at Clackamas County Fair and Oregon State Fair. Both her market goats and her heifer are housed at the school districts farm in Clackamas while her poultry is kept at her Milwaukie home. Her favorite project, she says, has to be the market goats and one of her many goals is to someday breed and raise high quality boer goat seedstock and market wethers.
