Seitz named Wisconsin Star Farmer Winner

June 15, 2023 Star Award

Nathan Seitz of the Pulaski FFA is a Wisconsin Star Farmer Winner!

Nathan purchased his first pair of market lambs in 2017. For the next couple of summers, Nathan would continue to do the same. Each year Nathan strived to learn more about sheep through trial and error, research and working with a variety of mentors. By the second year, Nathan was making management decisions on his own, such as switching his main feeding practice to pasture grazing. In 2020, Nathan purchased three ewes and a ram to start his breeding flock. This experience has allowed Nathan to gain an even greater depth of knowledge, including when to breed, how to assist in lambing, and what to feed through each stage of pregnancy. Nathan now owns nine ewes and two rams. As his flock continues to grow, Nathan is dedicated to producing high quality lambs each year.

Nathan plans to attend the University of Wisconsin – River Falls to pursue a degree in Agricultural Business. He hopes to one day have a job in finance while raising sheep on the side.

Nathan’s parents are Cindy and Mark Seitz. His advisors are Erin Montgomery, Cedric Pettis and Kaleb Santy.
