A writer's soul, a farmer's heart, and a lot of spunk...those three things describe UW-River Falls alum and Barron County Farm Bureau member Brittany Olson. While she didn't grow up on a farm, her father grew up on a small dairy farm in Dane County; she likes to say that the farming gene skipped a generation. When she's not in the classroom or advocating for agriculture, she enjoys tractor pulling and milking cows. Her favorite show from the 1990s is Seinfeld, she prefers red over green tractors (just look at her last name!), and Jersey cattle are her favorite animals.
