GENEX Dairy Marketing Intern, Beef Girl in a Dairy World

Meet Kaylan Risacher, a beef girl in a dairy world - at least for the summer!

So how does someone who grew up on a beef farm in Wright, Minnesota, end up working as a Dairy Marketing Intern in South Dakota with GENEX? The answer is simple, really, Kaylan wanted to gain experience for her future career as a veterinarian. Let's learn some more about this hard-working junior at the University of Minnesota-Crookston!

What clubs/organizations are you a part of?
I am secretary of Dairy Club, an active member of the Pre-Vet Med club and am also on the campus dairy judging team. Outside of school, I am a member of the American Gelbvieh Association, American Angus Association and was involved in 4-H for 11 years.

Why did you choose an internship with GENEX?
I wanted to gain more experience with both the bovine and dairy industries. I hope to go to vet school after completing my undergraduate degree, and this experience will benefit me greatly. Because of my minimal experience with dairy cattle, I figured this would be a chance for me to learn a lot about the industry!

What have you taken away from this internship thus far?
I love being able to interact with the owners, workers and cattle on the farms we visit. My dream is to wake up every morning looking forward to my day at work, because I enjoy what I am doing. That is exactly what is happening with this internship!

We here at GENEX are wishing Kaylan the best of luck as she finishes up her internship. Hopefully this position reinforced your passion for an exciting and dynamic industry!
