Growing up in rural Oklahoma, Josh Goff has always loved livestock. Horses have specifically held a special place in the Woodward FFA memberís heart. In 2006, he was able to go to work for Cudd Quarter Horses LLC. It was here where he has been able to see what it takes to work and manage a successful horse ranch. He began with the simple lower tasks such as cleaning stalls and feeding horses. Today, he rides and trains horses, cares for sick or injured animals and assists with the annual breeding process. He is supported by his parents, Tim Goff and Shelly Johnson as well as his FFA advisors, Dallas Krout and Galen McCune.
