Badger Dairy Club
Incoming Freshman Scholarship
in Memory of John Klossner
Due: October 16th, 2019
The Badger Dairy Club offers one $500 scholarship to a qualified incoming freshman that will attend the University of Wisconsin – Madison in the fall of 2019 and has a clear interest in joining the Badger Dairy Club. The scholarship will be awarded at a Badger Dairy Club meeting in the fall semester of the scholarship year, as long as the student is in good standing with the club.
This scholarship is in honor of the late John Klossner, a young man who touched many lives during his short Badger Dairy Club career. The scholarship is given in memory of John who tragically passed away in an accident while exhibiting at one of his favorite events, the Wisconsin Junior State Fair. John was active in the Green County Junior Holstein Association and served on the Wisconsin Junior Holstein Association Junior Activities Committee. He attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison and was an active member in Badger Dairy Club and Alpha Gamma Rho. He was also an accomplished cattle showman and had won many awards. This scholarship was established to award youth that have a similar passion for and involvement in the dairy industry that John exemplified.
Jared is from Brussels, WI and is majoring in Dairy Science. He plans to take over the family farm upon graduation. He was raised on a small 40-cow farm where he has been purchasing cattle to integrate into the herd. He is excited to learn all the new technologies and advancements that can improve the cows’ health and advance the farm upon his return at home.
Jared’s demonstration of work ethic, involvement in the dairy industry and commitment to the club thus far made him an ideal candidate for this scholarship.
