Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?
I decided to attend UW-Madison because I wanted to go to the best college in the world.
What has been your most memorable college experience?
My most memorable college experience was the summer I spent in Madison working on research in the reproduction lab of the Dairy Science Department under Dr. Milo Wiltbank, as I gained a ton of knowledge and it taught me valuable farm skills.
What has been your favorite course?
My favorite course here has been Dairy Science 375: Dairy Cattle Reproduction with Milo Wiltbank. I was able to take the course as a junior and learn all the skills and am currently a Teacher’s Assistant in the same class this year to help others gain valuable hands-on skills.
What are your future career goals?
After graduating this May I will be going home to my family’s dairy farm and eventually become part-owner with my two older brothers. I also have hopes of becoming a positive face in the dairy industry.
