UW-RF Dairy Club Web Site Places Second at Quebec City

The UW-River Falls Dairy Club took second place for the Best Web Site at the joint annual meetings of the American Dairy Science Association-American Society of Animal Science-Canadian Society of Animal Science in Quebec City, Canada. The meetings, held July 20-24, were attended by more than 3000 students and professionals from nine universities in the United States, Canada and other countries.

Five students and two faculty advisors from UW-RF went to Quebec City for the meetings. The students included:

Black Creek‹Luke Buttles, dairy science major, junior.
Blooming Prairie, Minn.‹Wayne Wencl, agricultural business major, junior.
Owatonna, Minn.‹Aaron Schrot, dairy science major, junior.
St. Charles, Minn.‹Aimee Finley, agricultural education major, senior.
Oesterdeichstrich, Germany‹Marcus Hollman, dairy science major, senior.

Dairy Club advisors Steve Kelm, assistant professor of dairy science and Dennis Cooper, professor of dairy science, accompanied the students on their trip.

On the way to the meetings, the group toured the farm of cattle breeders Floyd and Lloyd Baumann in Marathon, Wis. The Baumanns are the brothers of Larry Baumann, professor of dairy science at UW-RF. They also toured the Calf Source, a 5,300-head wet-calf rearing facility in DePere, Wis., and two purebred Aryshire cattle farms near Quebec City.

The students attended the meetings as members of the American Dairy Science Association Student Affiliate Division. The ADSA-SA is a division of the parent organization that works to develop leadership and to promote scholarship among dairy science students. Finley was recently elected president of the UW-RF Dairy Club and served as secretary of ADSA-SAD for the past year. Kelm completed a three-year term as faculty advisor to ADSA-SA.

ADSA was established in 1906 as a scientific and education association to serve the dairy and dairy-related industries. It facilitates the discovery, application and dissemination of dairy science knowledge and information.
