Meet Miss Rodeo Wisconsin at Farm Technology Days

BONDUEL, Wis., - Katelin Bradley is quite literally outstanding in her field. She spends a lot of time in fields as a Nutrient Management Plan Writer and Global Positioning Soil Sampling Technician for AgSource Laboratories in Bonduel, Wis. Bradley interned with the company for two summers before accepting a full-time position earlier this year.  A normal day for her entails collecting soil and plant tissue samples for laboratory analysis, and then developing nutrient management plans, based on test results and data collected on-farm. During the winter months, she helps farmers plan crop rotations and nutrient applications for the upcoming year based on their written plan. But it's what Bradley does in addition to her work at AgSource that makes her truly stand out in a crowd. She also serves as Miss Rodeo Wisconsin.

In January, Bradley assumed her reign as Miss Rodeo Wisconsin. Miss Rodeo Wisconsin has been representing and promoting professional rodeo in the state since 1962. Throughout her first seven months in this role, Bradley has traveled across the state speaking at 4H meetings, reading to kids in schools and libraries and performing in rodeos in order to raise awareness for breast cancer patients and honor military veterans. She'll continue traveling throughout the country this year, her final stop being Las Vegas, Nevada, where she'll represent Wisconsin in the Miss Rodeo America Pageant and the National Finals Rodeo.

Bradley is unfazed by the rigorous demands of holding two jobs, stating, "I am truly grateful that my job at AgSource not only allows me the flexibility to fulfill my duties as Miss Rodeo Wisconsin 2017, but also gives me the opportunity to see great expanses of my home state while working in agriculture. I've truly come to see Wisconsin in a whole new light, and know that no matter where I may roam, my home state has some of the best views in the country."

During Farm Technology Days, Bradley will be wearing both hats, so to speak.  She'll be working at the AgSource Laboratories booth A018, located in Agribusiness Tent A, and will be signing photographs as Miss Wisconsin Rodeo. You can visit with Bradley on Tuesday, July 11, 9 am - 11 am and 2 pm - 4 pm, and Wednesday, July 12, 2 pm - 4 pm. In addition, she will also be helping with the mounted shooting demonstrations in the Equine area Tuesday and Wednesday, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm.

In support of Bradley's rodeo connection, AgSource will have a drawing during the show for two sets of tickets to the Brown County Fair's PRCA Rodeo. Tickets are good for admission to both the fair and rodeo.
