Two long-time aids of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Farm and Industry Short Course were honored for their support and dedication to the program over the years.

During a special reunion in Madison, Arlin Brannstrom, faculty associate and Short Course instructor, was presented with the Friend of Short Course Award. For more than 15 years, Arlin has been shedding light on agricultural economics to students. He grew up in Mequon, but would often visit his grandfather's dairy farm in Upper Michigan. In addition to teaching for the program, Arlin was a Short Course housefellow in 1972 and 1973. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Economics with honors from UW-Madison in 1972, he went on to receive his Master's in Ag. Economics in 1973 and returned in 1991 to complete his M.B.A in Finance.

Meanwhile, Dr. Richard Daluge, assistant dean emeritus and retired Short Course director, was honored with the Service to Agriculture Award for his continued dedication and service to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Farm and Industry Short Course and the Wisconsin agriculture industry. Dean Daluge served as the Farm and Industry Short Course Director from 1983 to 2008. Prior to that role, his career at Madison included directing Career Services and Student Recruitment and serving as WALSAA Secretary/Treasurer. Rick grew up on a Holstein dairy farm near Janesville. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Education from UW-Madison in 1971, his Master's in Agriculture Extension in 1975 and his PhD in Adult Education/Educational Administration in 1982.

Since its beginning in 1885, production agriculture has been the focus of the Short Course program.
