As part of a new program to build relationships with prospective students, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Dairy Science Department held a raffle drawing during the Wisconsin State Fair junior dairy show. The Andis Company co-sponsored the program. Jordan Dorn of Green County and Trent Styczynski of Shawano County each won a set of Andis? Cattle Clippers. Other winners of UW-Madison Dairy Science apparel included Nick Jens, Sheboygan County; Tyler Jauquet, Kewaunee County; Nate Kringle, Barron County; Jacob Cramer, Jefferson County; Joel Barlow, Jefferson County; and Danielle Brown, Iowa County.
“I was really excited to win the clippers since it was my first year at State Fair,” says 13-year-old Trent Styczynski. “My family was jealous! I clipped one of my heifers the other day and they worked great. A lot of people have asked me to help clip toplines after I learned how to do them at the Badger Dairy Camp. I can use the new clippers now.”
Styczynski shows registered Holsteins and Brown Swiss at the Wisconsin State Fair junior show, High Protein Show and the Shawano County Fair.
