UW-Madison Dairy Science freshmen win National Jersey awards

Dec. 10, 2013 | 0 comments

MADISON

The American Jersey Cattle Association recently presented awards to two first-year students in the UW-Madison's Department of Dairy Sciences as part of a ceremony at the Nov. 9 Junior Banquet at The All American Jersey Shows & Sales in Louisville, KY.

Janelle Remington, the daughter of Richard and Gail Remington, from Juneau, received the Jack C. Nisbet Memorial Scholarship, worth $1,500. Remington has worked around Jersey cows since she was five. Her herd was started from the last heifer of her father's first cow and, since childhood, she "washed, walked, fed, clipped, and spoiled all of my heifers everyday," she says.

The experience has paid off. She credits Jerseys or, as she calls the breed, the "special brown cow," with introducing her to people, places and opportunities she could never have imagined.

Remington adds this latest accolade to an impressive list of awards. She most recently placed eighth in the 2012 National Jersey Youth Achievement Contest. In 2011, she won senior showmanship at World Dairy Expo and was high individual of the 4-H dairy judging contest at the Pennsylvania All-American Dairy Show.

Sydney Endres, daughter of David Endres and the late Patricia Endres, won the Bob Toole Jersey Youth Award, also worth $1,500. Endres, from Lodi, has had a busy first year on campus. She is double-majoring in dairy sciences and life sciences communication, while also minoring in Spanish. Adding to her workload, she also won the National Dairy Shrine/Marshall E. McCullough Scholarship and was crowned the 2013 National Jersey Queen this year.

Endres says the award is "amazing and exciting" and that she is thrilled to be able to "represent and promote" Jerseys. "My true passion is for the Jersey breed," she says. "I was the kid that brought the cow to show and tell in primary school."
