Why did you decide to join Collegiate Farm Bureau?
Growing up I helped with some activities and fundraisers for the Jefferson County Farm Bureau, where my mom is an active member. I wanted to continue to be involved in Farm Bureau and Collegiate Farm Bureau gave me the opportunity to stay involved while I am at college. Being active in the Collegiate Farm Bureau will help me transition into becoming an active member upon graduation.
Give an update on what Collegiate Farm Bureau has done on campus and what is coming up for the spring semester.
So far this semester, UW-Madison Collegiate Farm Bureau has gone to a women’s hockey game, and on a Spring Trip to Washington and Oregon. Some of our tours on the trip included visiting the Washington Farm Bureau, Oregon Hazelnuts, Oregon Flowers, TMK Creamery and a fish hatchery. We also spent an afternoon at Oregon State University with their Collegiate Farm Bureau members. For the rest of the semester, we will be hosting Ag Day on Campus, visiting classrooms for Ag in the Classroom and will finish up the year with our annual banquet.
