Jane Hillstrom

Hillstrom spent nearly 10 years as executive director of the Wisconsin Beef Council. During her tenure she advocated for funding for UW meat science research and partnered with UW-Extension on public education. After leaving the council she started her own business, Hillstrom Communications, where meat and dairy producers form the bulk of her clients. “My passion for the beef industry began on my grandfather’s farm and in 4-H showing Herefords at the local county fair,” she says. “I have always loved working with cattle and the people that raise them.”
