Nicole (Franzen) Reese

Nicole Reese, 23, will graduate in May from the University of Wisconsin- Madison with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Education. This program has prepared her to become a secondary education teacher with focus on agricultural subjects such as Animal Science, Agricultural Business, Food Science, Horticulture and Wildlife. She is currently serving as an Agricultural Education Intern at Milton High School in Milton, Wisconsin.

Nicole was raised in Sheboygan Falls on a mid-sized dairy farm. Dusty Lane Farms, LLC, is a partnership between her grandparents and parents. While growing up she actively milked, operated equipment and performed various farm duties. Dusty Lane Farms, LLC, provides her with much of her agricultural inspiration today. She presently resides in Jefferson with her husband Anthony.

She has been employed by USDA Farm Service Agency and served as Wisconsin State FFA Vice-President in 2002-2003. This position allowed her to travel Wisconsin promoting agriculture and the FFA organization. As an officer, she had to create and implement educational workshops, give speeches and presentations as well as coordinate various FFA functions. During college Nicole played a significant role in the UW-Madison collegiate FFA chapter and the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation. She was finalist in the 2005 Wisconsin Farm Bureau State Discussion Meet.

Nichole is extremely excited to serve as a representative for Wisconsin’s Agriculture Industry. “Alice fills a vital role as an ambassador for Wisconsin Agriculture. I want to work to educate all audiences about the importance and diversity in the industry”, she said.
