I would like to thank the Targeting Excellence board, committees, and sponsors who have helped students like me pursue their passion for learning. Animal agriculture must continue to become more efficient and sustainable. It will be up to students like me and my peers to find cost effective ways to do this. Education is a crucial step in allowing us to reach our full potential. Thank you again for your support!
I hope to work in the agricultural industry for the rest of my life. Particularly, in the dairy industry. I look forward to working a few years off my family’s dairy farm to gain knowledge and experience. I would love a position in either nutrition or reproduction. With these roles, I believe I will have the best exposure to many different and educational farm practices. In the end, I hope to return to my family’s dairy farm and continue to improve the profitability and sustainability using the knowledge I have gained both through college and my previous role(s) in the industry.
