Jessie Wagner is a new addition in our Columbus store. She recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Platteville with a degree in Animal Science and Agribusiness. While in college, Jessie was the Secretary of the Equestrian’s Club and a part of the Equestrian Team roster. She worked as a student dairy worker on the UW-Platteville Pioneer Farm and certified to artificially inseminate cattle.
For her internship in the summer of 2015, Jessie spent a summer in northern California working on the Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary. She learned a lot about the behavior of horses. A few other things she did during her time there was care for an orphaned foal, minor veterinary practices, and was able to halter train a yearling.
Growing up, Jessie had many different animals on her family farm such as pigs, beef cattle, rabbits, chickens, ducks, and a horse. She was very involved in FFA throughout high school and received many awards such as first place in state for Poultry Proficiencies. Jessie has also received her State and American FFA degrees. We are happy to welcome Jessie to the WS Ag Center team!
