2020 Indiana Dairy Producers Scholarship Recipient,

Kelsey Rexing

My experience and background came long before my interest in dairy cattle. Since I was able to reach the cows in our drop parlor, with a stool of course, I have milked our small herd of dairy cattle. Growing up on my family's farm, the first job each morning was to roll out of bed and go tend to the cows. On any given morning, I was either milking or feeding the calves, sometimes a combination of both. Until I got into high school, I hated our cows and milking them with a burning passion. Because of them I had to do so much work "normal" kids my age did not have to do. The only benefit they gave me was show cows.

2020 Indiana Producer of the Year,

Robert McKaig

I was born and raised on the family dairy farm. The farm has been in the family since the 1830's. 

In 1972, the farm became a partnership between my brothers Ed and Roger, and my father, Ed Senior. 

In 1977 I joined the partnership.

In 1980, our Dad withdrew from the partnership for estate purposes.

Since then it's just been my older brother and myself in the partnership with various full and part-time employees. 

In 1977, I graduated form Purdue with a degree in Ag Economics.
