Student manages swine for sale, wins scholarship
UW-River Falls student John Nelson is having a very busy February.
Between school and farrowing time for the sows at the Mann Valley Laboratory Farm, the junior agricultural education student from Galesville is learning to successfully balance it all.
This month, Nelson was awarded the $500 Whitmore Memorial Scholarship by the Wisconsin Pork Producers Association. The scholarship is awarded to a student that will be an influence in the hog industry.
