California State University, Chico
Sierra Valley, California
After graduating from California State University, Chico in May of 2014 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Agricultural Business Weston decided to move back home to the beautiful Sierra Valley to work on his family’s cattle and hay ranch. Roberti Ranch runs a fall and spring calving cow-calf operation, as well as produces alfalfa hay. Weston helps with the farming and hay side of the operation, but primarily works on the cattle production aspect of the ranch.
“I am extremely grateful to the Rustici Scholarship Program for helping me obtain my college education from Chico State. Not only did my time there teach me new skills and help me gain experience outside of the ranch, but it also helped me make connections with people all over the state of California that are involved in the same industry,” states Weston a 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 Rustici Scholarship Award Winner. “Thanks to Mr. Rustici for investing in the future of agriculture, as well as myself and other young adults that desire to return to family ranches.”
