In “College Student Loves Her Cows,” meet dairy farmer Katerina Coffman, a sophomore at Penn State University who is studying animal science and agri-business management.

Along with taking a full schedule of classes, Coffman works at Penn State’s Dairy Barns, where she milks cows and immerses herself in research going on around her. Right outside the facility is Beaver Stadium, and Coffman says she loves sharing her Penn State pride with the university’s Holstein herd.

“I wanted to go to an institution that valued research and valued the importance of being able to identify trends within the industry,” Coffman says. “Penn State is providing me with the best industry knowledge and real-world experience.”

“I also enjoy sharing my love for dairy cows with other students who have not grown up on a farm,” she says.

Watch “This American Dairy Farmer” to learn more about what drives Coffman’s motivation to make sure vulnerable communities have access to nutritious food.
