Jakubik '06 Earns National Farm Award
The award became a family affair when her brother, Matt, received the same award at the convention.
The honor rewards years of academic and professional excellence, demonstrated leadership ability and outstanding achievements in agricultural business, production, processing or service programs. To be eligible, members must have earned and productively invested $7,500 through a supervised agricultural experience program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in an existing agricultural enterprise.

Besides milking cows, caring for calves, maintaining animal health files and other dairy tasks, she raised and sold market hogs. She would buy the hogs in April and raise them to show at the county fair where she sold the finished animals at auction.
