Illinois Holstein Welcomes Sarah Lenkaitis as New Secretary

Sarah Lenkaitis is originally from a dairy farm in Wisconsin and now resides in St. Charles, Illinois. There she, along with her husband Andy, manage his family’s 120-head herd of Registered Red and White Holsteins. A 2008 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Sarah earned a degree in dairy science. She has held several marketing and communications positions at agencies with agricultural clients. Today, Sarah works on the farm and is a freelance writer. She is excited to begin offering tours at the farm this summer following the completion of a new barn and installation of two robotic milking units.
