Brian hopes to one day becomes a USDA meat inspector. So when the Drummond FFA member was given the opportunity to work at Enid Packing Co. and Big Country Meat Market he was ecstatic. Here was an opportunity for him to take the skills he used in his meat evaluation career development event on a daily basis. He continues to learn more about agricultural processing and at Enid Pack, he is able to be involved in every facet of meat processing. His parents, Brian and Amber Masters as well as his advisor, Keith Dillingham, are supportive of his endeavors.
