Turlock, CA-All West/Select Sires is pleased to announce the addition of Randy Edwards to the team as a summer Marketing Intern. Edwards, a native of Hilmar, CA, is currently attending California Polytechnic State University where he is earning a B.S. in Dairy Science while minoring in Agriculture Business.
The self-proclaimed “show jock” gained a passion for the dairy industry at a young age, showing and judging his own purebred dairy cattle in both 4-H and FFA programs. While he was heavily involved in his FFA chapter, Randy and his team won the title of FFA State Champion Dairy Cattle Judging Team in 2011, the same year he exhibited his own heifer at World Dairy Expo. Edwards now competes on Cal Poly’s nationally ranked dairy cattle judging team and has held office in Cal Poly’s Los Lecheros Dairy Club.
“I have always enjoyed being around cows,” Edwards simply stated. “More importantly, I want to make a difference in dairy farmer’s herds and All West allows me the opportunity to do so.”
When he is not at school or managing his family’s purebred heifer ranch, Edwards enjoys attending cattle shows and riding his quad on Pismo Beach. Edwards is considering earning his Master’s Degree in business upon graduation and would like to stay involved in the dairy industry in the future.
Edwards started work with All West/Select Sires in late June.
