Schwochert Named Wisconsin Star in Agricultural Placement Finalist

June 16, 2022 Star Award

Dillian Schwochert of the Montello FFA is a Wisconsin Star in Agricultural Placement finalist.

The Star in Agricultural Placement award is given to students that are working in a variety of job opportunities in the agricultural industry.

In 2017, Dillian started working at Swanke Dairy Farm where he milks around 300 head of Holstein, Kineback, and crossbred dairy cattle. When Dillian first started, his main responsibilities included  feeding and bedding calves. Now, Dillian helps with dehorning, vaccinating, and bedding cattle. Before milking in the parlor, he is in charge of sanitizing the milking system and setting it up so that he can ensure that every piece is clean and working properly. 

In the future, Dillion will be furthering his education at Fox Valley Technical in Animal Science. After college, he wants to start his own farm and use the knowledge that he has learned from Swanke Dairy Farm to help him succeed.

Dillian’s parents are Kurt and Heather Schwochert. His advisor is Hannah Wolsdorf.
