Illinois Ag Connection - 12/13/2019

Nine college students have been chosen for internships by CentralStar Cooperative, which serves dairy and beef producers in Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.

From Illinois, Erin Gauss is a junior at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, Ill., majoring in animal science with a concentration in animal nutrition. Working in the Dairy Focus Lab as a laboratory assistant, Erin aided the lab in the acquisition, processing, storage, and analysis of dairy samples investigating dairy-cow-transition metabolism and how nutrition impacts reproductive efficiency. She plans to complete a graduate research degree in animal nutrition following completion of her bachelor's degree. As an intern in the CentralStar Research and Development (R&D) Lab, East Lansing, Mich., she will work closely with the R&D team on the validation of new diagnostic tests, automated workflows, and discovery of biomarkers.

CentralStar was established earlier this year when upon the merger between East Central/Select Sires and NorthStar Cooperative.
