Gotham named Wisconsin Star in Agriscience

June 16, 2022 Star Award

Wyatt Gotham of the New Auburn FFA is a Wisconsin Star in Agriscience.

The Star in Agriscience Award recognizes individuals who have worked in areas of agricultural research or focused on the scientific aspect of their Supervised Agricultural Experience.

Spending time on his family’s farm sparked Wyatt’s interest in agriscience research. He developed a research project to determine if salt water could be filtered using various combinations of sheep wool, which earned him 5th Gold at the National Agriscience Fair. Wyatt shared that this project was what motivated him to continue his agriscience research SAE, later researching erosion techniques and organic fertilizers. Most recently, Wyatt determined if broiler chickens fed a ration of 50% cracked corn and 50% commercial broiler feed would have more tender meat than store bought chicken. 

Wyatt’s parents are Jonah and Kristi Gotham. His advisor is Brenda Scheil.
