Southern Door High School sophomore Chloe LaCrosse's dream of expanding and improving her herd of four registered Holsteins got a big boost from the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. LaCrosse received a $1,000 grant from the statewide dairy cooperative. LaCrosse started raising one Holstein calf when she was younger. The calf was a gift from her grandparents. She says the Supervised Agriculture Experience grant will help her raise quality Holsteins.
Chloe LaCrosse eventually hopes to attend U-W Madison to major in dairy sciences while growing her own herd with support from her family which has 83* registered Holsteins.
