A WORD FROM LAURIE: After graduating from Watertown High School in southeast WI, I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and graduated with a double major of Dairy Science and Agricultural Journalism. After UW-Madison, I went to The Ohio State University for my Master’s Degree, where my research focused on limiting energy intake in transition cows. I worked for Ohio State as the Dairy Program Specialist for almost two years before going back to school to pursue my Ph.D. at Cornell University in upstate New York. My research at Cornell was related to how insulin affects milk protein synthesis.

Outside of work, I am still involved on my family’s 130-cow Brown Swiss and Holstein farm in Watertown, WI. I help make genetics and making decisions for our herd, and we enjoy showing the Brown Swiss at state and national shows.
