Nelson Honored as First Ever Dairy Athlete of the Month
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/29/2022

A varsity football player from Ellsworth is being recognized as the state's very first Wisconsin Dairy Athlete of the Month. Levi Nelson receives the honor for September, which aims to bring awareness to exceptional individuals who embody character, commitment, and determination, both on and off the field, while sharing the story of today's dairy farm families.

Nelson's family owns Heartland Ridge Farm/Ter-Rae Farms, Inc. near Ellsworth. He is tasked with animal care on the farm where he owns six Holsteins on his own and three heifers in partnership with his niece. In addition to his athletic interests and helping his family on the farm, he is a member of the Springbrook 4-H Club and the Ellsworth FFA Chapter where he gets involved with service work throughout the community.

Levi is a high school sophomore who plays running back on the football team with plans to exceed last year's successes in wrestling and track and field.

The Dairy Athlete of the Month program is sponsored by WisSports.net in partnership with Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin. They plan to recognize high school student-athletes who are actively involved on a Wisconsin dairy farm and participate in at least one WIAA-sanctioned varsity sport.
