My name is Kristen Kelderman and I am a current graduate at the University of Guelph. My declared major is in Agricultural Sciences, with a focus on animal productions and communication. This blog began as a part of a communications course that I took offered by Professor Owen Roberts at the University of Guelph.
My hopes of this blog was to utilize it as an online communication tool to inspire individuals to get involved and up to date on the current agriculture topics within the dairy industry. I believe that there is great potential for young people of my generation to become involved in agriculture by expressing themselves through current media trends, such as blogging. It is my hope to communicate my personal opinions to readers and give them a perspective that they might not have previously considered. Although I will cover various topics involving agriculture, the majority of my posts will reflect my opinions of the dairy industry, as I grew up on and am currently active on my family’s dairy operation.
