Cheyanne Faught, 17, of Mt. Judea, has been named a Junior Farmer of the Year. She lives on a farm where she takes care of many of the animals including these new kittens that immediately became a part of the family.

Cheyanne Faught is a member of a close family. Pictured are from left, her brother, Trenton, grandfather Zelmer Campbell, Cheyanne, cousin Leslie Campbell, her mother mother Leketta Faught, her brother Malachi Fought and uncle B.J. Campbell.

Most of Cheyanne's farm duties lie within the 3.5 acres surrounding her home not far from the Mt. Judea School. Most of the animals are friendly pets.

Here Cheyanne is with one of the two Jersey milking cows used to raise calves from the herd. The cows have to be fed twice a day.
