Jakobi named Wisconsin Star in Agribusiness Finalist

June 16, 2022 Star Award

Brandon Jakobi of the Loyal FFA is a Wisconsin Star in Agribusiness Finalist.

The Star in Agribusiness award recognizes students who have taken their spirit for entrepreneurship and developed their own Agricultural business.

Brandon runs his own baling service and has been able to expand his services to include a variety of options for baling hay. In addition to owning a round baler, Brandon has recently purchased a small square baler and hay wagon, which has allowed him to further diversify his services. He performs his own maintenance checks and repairs, in addition to running all of the baling services. Brandon shares that the biggest challenge in his SAE is maintaining profits – but he has found that providing high quality service to his customers, paired with local advertising allows him to keep his business profitable. 

Brandon’s goal is to obtain a degree in agricultural mechanics and then later take over his family’s dairy farm in Granton, while also working as a CNC machinist.

Brandon’s parents are Dennis and Tracy Jakobi. His advisor is Stephanie Donnerbauer.
