OFI 1475: In Blood & Urine You Can Learn A Lot About An Animal’s Health | FFA SAE Edition | Danae Westra | Central Valley Christian FFA
It is that time of year again, and it is my pleasure to interview the American Star Finalists for this year's National FFA Convention. What a great time of year, and what a fantastic guest to kick off this series of interviews with!
I am always fascinated with the way the mind of the finalists in agriscience research work, and with Danae Westra that is very true! Not only has Danae been doing research on her families dairy since her freshman year of high school, but she has been doing research with immediate, practical applications in the family dairy business. In addition to that, Danae has a big personality, and that has show through in the names that she has given each one of her projects:
In this interview with Danae you will hear a repeated theme - getting up at 6am to do research before school started. Whether that was weighing calves, pulling blood samples or collecting urine, she was out there, everyday, getting it done before school even started. This is what is so inspirational about FFA students, and this is why Danae has already been recognized as one of the top four agriscience researchers out of the 850,000+ FFA students in the nation!
