Student Roundtable, continued from page 29 Rettenmund: Keep an open mind. I really didn’t want to go to college. I did not plan on continuing any education post-high school. All I wanted to do was work on my family farm. Always consider where you want to be five years from now and how you will get there. College is a great way to not only learn helpful tool that will help you achieve success in your future goals, but also a great networking tool. It is a good experience to not live with your parents for a few months or years. It helps shape you into your own person because it allows you to make all your own choices. Yoap: I would highly recommend Lakeshore Tech to any students interested in dairy. I know many students believe they don’t need college to work on a dairy farm but there are so many advantages. It really opens one’s eyes to the detail and the importance behind every practice. Having such a hands-on course allows you to work with the cattle and learn effectively. I would also recommend Lakeshore Tech because it is only a one year course and it’s very hands-on. I very much love the fact that they require you to work on a nearby farm because it provides the student with a job in their profession as well as more hands-on learning.
