Why did you decide to attend UW-Madison?

My most memorable experience has been participating in World Dairy Expo as a member of the Badger Dairy Club. I served as the Co-General Chair for 2019 WDE helping to ensure the event was a success. Through this I was able to make memories that will last a lifetime as well as meet and network with numerous people in the dairy industry.

My favorite course has been Dairy Science 233/234. Between these courses, we are given an entire year of practical dairy herd management experience. Industry experts would come in each week to share their knowledge and teach us effective herd management strategies.
