Turlock, CA-All West/Select Sires is pleased to announce the addition of Mackenzie Gomes to the team as a Communications Intern for the summer. Gomes, raised in Willows, CA, is currently attending California Polytechnic State University where she is earning a B.S. in agriculture communication while minoring in agriculture business.
Growing up on her family’s third generation Holstein dairy farm, Gomes gained a passion for all things agriculture at a young age. She was an active member of both 4-H and FFA, showing rabbits and dairy cattle and served as California’s 2013 – 2014 District 4 Dairy Princess. While attending college, Gomes works as a milker and calf feeder at the Cal Poly Dairy and is involved in the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow Club.
“All West/Select Sires has always treated my family like part of their own while being their customers for many years,” said Gomes. “I look forward to another opportunity where I can give back to the dairy farming families that have given so much to me.
” While not busy with her many activities, Gomes enjoys reading, writing and photography while experiencing the agriculture industry. Upon graduation, she would like to pursue a career in the dairy industry involving social media and public relations. Gomes started work with All West Select Sires in late June.
