Turlock, CA-All West/Select Sires is pleased to announce the addition of Carly Olufs to the team as the 2018 All West Summer Intern. Olufs, raised in Petaluma, CA, is currently attending Oklahoma State University where she is earning a B.S. in Animal Science with an emphasis in Business.
Olufs knows the value of hard work, having grown her own operation from one Holstein heifer to a herd of over 15 registered Jersey and Holstein dairy show cattle. Carly-O Jerseys and Holsteins has been successful both in the showring and in numerous additional competitive ventures. Olufs was a National Proficiency Finalist for Dairy Production Entrepreneurship in 2015 and was California Holstein Association’s Breeder of the Future in 2014.
More recently, Olufs served as California Milk Advisory Board’s District 3 Alternate Dairy Princess in 2016 and earned her FFA American Degree in 2017. Olufs is an employee of Oklahoma State University’s dairy, a team member of the Oklahoma State Collegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Team, an active member of the Oklahoma State University Dairy Science Club and a founding member of Oklahoma State’s Sigma Alpha professional agricultural sorority.
“This internship is a unique opportunity where I can gain knowledge and exposure to all areas of the industry with the All West team. When considering career opportunities, the A.I. industry interests me the most. I can’t think of a more rewarding career than combining my passion for cattle with the opportunity to work with dairymen and ranchers on a daily basis.”
When she is not at school or managing Carly-O Jerseys and Holsteins, Olufs enjoys giving back to programs that have had an impact on her success, such as 4-H and FFA, by mentoring the next generation of students learning and competing in these activities.
Olufs starts working with All West/Select Sires in June 2018.
