Ladies in the Lead- Meet Rilynn Buesing

Ladies In the Lead meet Miss Rilynn Buesing. This sixteen year old has just experienced what some might call, "The summer of a lifetime!" Being only the 3rd person to ever achieve Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion 4-H Market Hog at the Iowa State Fair, Rilynn takes us through the emotions and the thrill of achieving such a huge accomplisment.

During our conversation she shares with us how the spring and summer evolved. Would you believe that her hogs actually placed last at her first jackpot? Would you also believe that her Dad challenged her after last year's state fair to win it this year? I love how Rilynn says so casually, "I just knew the hard work would make it possible!"

Like most high schoolers, Rilynn loves to play volleyball, hang out with friends, and be in the barn with her two older sisters and family. She is passionate about, "Hamilton" the musical, and even raps a little! It's amazing how cattle, hogs, and music can bring us all together.

I can't wait for you to listen in. I hope you feel the energy, the excitement and mostly the gratitude that she has for such an opportunity. She says, "Stock show is family"... Rilynn sure shows us that!
