Casey has always made volunteering a priority. Since becoming a full time partner on the farm she has:
• Volunteered on the Rochester Ag Society for 3 years
• Assistant, then general leader of the DFJ 4H Multiclub
• 7 year volunteer secretary of Country Roads Holstein Club
• Member of Jersey Canada’s Youth Committee and annual Jersey Canada Conference Committee, being the chairman of the JC Conference in 2019.
• Event Coordinator for the Alberta Dairy Youth Show & Scholarship Program for the last 5 years.
• Inter-provincial Alberta representative & team coach for Alberta for the Western Canadian Classic Youth Program.


Casey turned down multiple job offers after graduating university and instead made the choice to farm to help her community.
While the Farm was expanding and the new barn was being made, Casey and her brother did all the plumbing in its entirety in the new barn. Together, they completed a huge amount of the concrete work, dug in all the manure and water lines, and installed all the interior walls, rooms, doors, windows and watering system for all the cattle. All this work was done by her and her family. Casey was committed to seeing this project happen while keeping costs down.
Casey took the lead in milking a makeshift system while the farm was waiting for the new equipment to be installed and the old equipment was pulled out. The use of the makeshift system was used for almost 6 months that took 6 hours to milk in the morning and night. This was all done while also working on construction of the new barn before the winter weather hit.
