Madie Wensley grew up in Parma, Michigan where she was first introduced to agriculture through a family friend. Raising her first set of market hogs in 4H planted a seed, igniting her passion for production agriculture. Her family now operates a small hobby farm where they maintain a herd of boar goats, bred and raised for show each year. Madie graduated from Michigan State University in May 2018 with a B.S. in Animal Science. During her time at MSU, Madie was an active member in the Block and Bridle Club and competed on the Meat Animal Evaluation Team, as well as worked as a student employee at the Swine Teaching and Research Facility and as an Undergraduate Research Assistant. Madie also completed two internships while at MSU, working with The Maschhoffs’ and Michigan Pork Producers Association. Madie joined the Applied Swine Nutrition Team in June 2018 and is currently working on her M.S. In her free time, she enjoys being outdoors, reading, and spending time with her friends, family and dog.
