About Jessica Mehre
Jessica hails from a small dairy farm in Wisconsin. While pursuing her B.S. in Dairy Science and Agronomy at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, she experienced a wide breadth of agriculture, from dairy nutrition research in Idaho to soybean seed production in the Great Plains, which led to both a realistic and holistic view of production agriculture. Her current research interests focus on soil organic matter quantification and characterization under livestock grazing. Through the CREATE Climate-Smart Soils program, she hopes to advance into a career which progresses the sustainable management of agricultural soils. Outside of the academic world, Jessica enjoys running, cycling, and culturing yeast (bread-making).
