Days of 76 Queen Contestant: Carrietta Schalesky

Days of 76 Queen Contestant:

Born and raised in South Dakota, Carrietta Schalesky is the 22 year old daughter of T.W. and Faye Schalesky. She has a sister Gail and brother Jacob. The family ranch 45 miles Northwest of Faith, SD is where she calls home.

Carrietta is currently attending South Dakota State University as a senior pursuing a degree in Animal Science and Agricultural Business. She and her sister hope to build a vet clinic in their home community after completing college educations. Carrietta is very passionate about the western way of life and hopes to one day have a ranch of her own or take over the family operation to raise Charolais and Angus cattle, Rambouillet sheep, and purebred Quarter horses. Carrietta enjoys working livestock on the family ranch, training horses, singing, photography, playing basketball, and sharing her love of agriculture with others.

She would like to thank her sponsor, DC Trucking LLC. of Desmet, SD. Carrietta wishes the best of luck to all participants and wants to welcome all visitors and guest to the 2016 Black Hills Round up.
