Hello there,
My name is Frank Maricle, I am the sole author of the Central Oregon Hay blog. I would like to introduce myself and share a little of my background.

I am currently 22 years old, I have a Associates Degree in Computer Science from Central Oregon Community College, and am working towards a Bachelor’s Degree in Crop Science. I have been taking core classes for the Crop Science Degree here at COCC, while I make the decision of which university to attend for the upper-level classes. I currently work full time farming, as well studying. It is hard work, but I am dedicated to my education.

I farm in Central Oregon. I had 210 acres in 2012 that I leased, as well as many acres I covered while doing custom haying. Farming is my passion, I have been leasing ground for 5 years while going to school. I started farming with my Dad as a way to pay for college, but it has blossomed into my career.

Besides agriculture, I enjoy music, watching football (go Ducks!), as well as developing social media and this blog.

I hope you find this blog informative and entertaining!

-Frank M.

I would like to thank you for visiting this blog!
