In her work as an agricultural agent focusing on dairy and livestock production and management in Kewaunee County, Aerica Bjurstrom both meets and anticipates her customers’ needs. “My programming changes depending on what farmers are asking for—or if I see a need for something new before they ask,” she says. Bjurstrom, whose CALS degree is in animal sciences, works with dairy producers in such areas as production practices, farm safety and dairy forages. She also facilitates her county’s Master Gardener Volunteer and horticulture programs, which include working with three community gardens. She’s especially happy to be serving as the executive secretary for Farm Technology Days, which will be held in Kewaunee County—for the first time ever—in 2017. “Now I’m working with even more amazing people with a passion for agriculture,” she says.
