Rebecca Klopp 2016 Scholarship Winner

Rebecca Klopp

- Graduate Degree Award


2016 Scholarship Recipient

Hometown: Bethel, PA

School: Clemson University

Major / Species: Dairy Nutrition

Career Goals: My time spent working with dairy research and production at Penn State has motivated me to pursue my Master’s Degree in dairy nutrition. Particularly, I would love to study dairy calf and heifer nutrition. I know how important calf and heifer nutrition is to the dairy industry. It establishes a firm foundation for the animal later in life and will help to increase her productivity. I think farms sometimes neglect the health and nutrition of their heifers because they don’t see an immediate benefit, so I want to further my knowledge about heifer nutrition in order to intelligently inform producers of its importance. I know that heifer nutrition is a growing field, that is starting to take off, and I would love to be a part of that growth and success. My future plans include getting my Master’s followed by my Ph.D., and then to work for a university and continue to perform research pertaining to calf and heifer nutrition.
