Leif grew up on a dairy farm near St. Peter, MN where his family milks 180 cows and grows a few hundred acres of crops. Growing up, he always knew that he wanted to go to the U of MN to pursue his passion for learning about agriculture. Leif joined DTS for the opportunities to make connections and learn how to become a leader. He currently is serving as the President in DTS and is looking forward to his last semesters. Leif is also involved in the Gopher Dairy Club, Minnesota Royal, Dairy Judging, and the Agricultural Business Club. After college, he hopes to work in the agricultural industry for a few years before eventually going back to his family’s farm.
