Raj Murugesan, Technical & Marketing Director for Biomin, took a few minutes to discuss why her company is committed to supporting Targeting Excellence.
Why do you feel it is important to support an organization like Targeting Excellence?
Murugesan: Targeting Excellence plays a significant role in providing the industry the opportunity to meet potential students who are interested to make a career in this industry, thereby the organization helps both the industry and the students to meet their needs.
What do you feel is the biggest impact Targeting Excellence is having on the animal ag industry?
Murugesan: Because it brings awareness to students of the various key industry players who have a big impact on this industry. It provides the opportunity for students who aren’t quite sure what they want to do in the ag industry to see all of the opportunities in research, sales, technical support, etc.
What has pleased you most about working with Targeting Excellence?
Murugesan: Having the Targeting Excellence events allows students to get some one on one time with folks from different companies to ask questions and see how every company impacts the ag industry. It provides a space for the students to gain some contacts and relationships to further their future career.
Thank you Biomin for helping SUPPORT Students in Food Animal AGRICULTURE!
Targeting Excellence has set a goal in 2017 to raise $225,000 in scholarship funds that will be awarded to students in 2018. Committees comprised of individuals from food production systems, allied industries and university professors are volunteering their time and resources to raise these funds from national and regional sponsors. In keeping with our mission these committees are also actively planning events in 2017 for Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin that will allow students and industry leaders the opportunity to meet and network. Targeting Excellence hopes to see you at one or more of these events this year.
