Jay Dicke

OFFICER AT LARGE


Year in School: Senior
Major: Agriculture Food Business Management
Hometown: Goodhue, Minnesota

 

Dairy Background: I grew up on 200 cow dairy where my family and I milk Holstein and Jersey cows. Growing up I showed in both 4-H and FFA local and state shows as well as dairy judging and quiz bowl. Currently, I am a Midwest Dairy Ambassador for the state of Minnesota.

Why did you decide to take on a leadership/executive position in the club? I sought out a leadership position because I wanted to give back to the club that has done so much for me. This is the first club I joined on campus, and I have had no regrets since. Also, I like working with others to improve the club for years to come.


How are you involved on campus and in Gopher Dairy Club? I have served as the Gopher Dairy Bar co-manager, the social chair, the alumni reunion chair, and I am currently The Officer at Large. Besides this, I am a part of The Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, Gopher Crops and Soils, and CFANS Ambassadors.

 

What are your future plans after graduation? Post graduation, I plan on finding a job in the agricultural field.

If you could be one dairy product, what would you be and why? I would be a glass of white milk. I have always enjoyed a cold glass of milk with each meal, and it is what every other dairy product is made out of.
