TYLER HOSKINS






Credit Agricole Capital

Editor’s Note: This is part of a series of stories highlighting high school students in the Brazos Valley who are active in 4-H or FFA. The series, which is sponsored by Capital Farm Credit, will culminate with selected students receiving scholarships.

From an early age, Tess Homeyer, a senior at Caldwell High School, loved the farming industry. This love grew alongside the Brahmin cattle raised by his family. At the age of 8, Homeyer joined 4-H and started showing cattle. After entering high school, she pursued her passion as a member of the FFA.

Christine Vogler, an agricultural science teacher at Caldwell High School, said Homeyer jumped right into high school and was a great role model for the younger FFA members.

“Tess is extremely intelligent, she’s at the top of her class,” said Vogler. “She has always been a part of our leadership events as well as showing cattle. This is exactly the kind of student we like to have to represent our organization.

Homeyer has served as vice president and treasurer of his local FFA chapter and is the current secretary. Outside of school, Homeyer has been the Director of the Texas Brahman Association (TJBA) since 2019, Vice President of the TJBA since 2021, and Director of the American Junior Brahman Association (AJBA) since 2021. Homeyer said these opportunities gave him and his fellow officers and administrators the chance not only to learn more about the Brahmin industry, but also about each other to become better and more important role models for the youth of the agricultural industry.
