Baraboo, Wis. – The Wisconsin Holstein Association (WHA) is pleased to announce Hailey Hendrickson of Cambria as the 2021 summer intern. Hailey will work out of the office in Baraboo, Wisconsin.
Over the course of the summer, Hendrickson will serve in public relations and communication roles, planning and coordinating the 2021 WHA All-Breeds Futurity, held at Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis, and working to execute a successful summer show season! In addition to these main tasks, she will work with the WHA staff to create content for the website, e-newsletter, and attend shows and various events throughout the state.
Hendrickson grew up on her family’s 175-cow Registered Holstein, Red and White, and Jersey operation, Coed Mawr Dairy. The farm branches back to the families deep Welsh roots, “Coed Mawr” meaning “big woods” is pronounced “ko-id, maw-er.” In addition to raising and showing dairy cattle, she also grew up showing rabbits and pigs, along with being heavily involved with 4-H and FFA.
Hendrickson will be a junior this fall at South Dakota State University (SDSU), majoring in Dairy Production with a minor in Animal Health. She is actively involved in SDSU Dairy Club where she is currently club secretary and co-chair of cheese boxes, the club’s largest fundraiser.
Her connections across the Midwest in all livestock species, passion for agriculture as a whole, as well as her experience in photography will help ensure a successful summer at WHA. She is excited to travel the state and meet and make connections with Registered Holstein breeders.
The Wisconsin Holstein Association staff is excited to welcome Hailey Hendrickson and her talents to the team!
