The 2023 Dairy Production – Placement proficiency winner is Courtney Glenna of the Amery FFA. This proficiency is sponsored by Four Hands Holsteins, Inc and Lely North America.
Courtney has been assisting on her family’s 130 cow dairy farm and showing dairy since she was only ten years old. At the beginning, with the assistance of her dad, Courtney completed simple jobs such as cleaning barns, milking cows, and feeding heifers. Now, Courtney completes tasks independently and serves in a more managerial role. In this capacity, Courtney follows appropriate farm protocols, assists with calving season, keeps accurate records, diagnoses and treats diseases, participates in field work, and much more. Futhermore, Courtney takes great pride in having a large role in reproductive management of their families’ herd by being responsible for sire selections and genomic testing.
Courtney’s advisor is Derrick Meyer.

Second: Berena Bartel of the Waupaca FFA
Third: Lindsey Montgomery of the Waupaca FFA
Fourth: Bethany Magdanz of the Weyauwega-Fremont FFA
Fifth: Eli Nett of the Weyaywega-Fremont FFA
