2017 Colvin Scholarship Awards:

Sierra Jepsen


$7,500 scholarship award

Sierra Jepsen
The Ohio State University

Sierra Jepsen is a senior in agribusiness and applied economics. She stands out as the only repeat Colvin winner – not just twice, but three times, including second place last year. In her essay on the impact heavier carcass weights have on quality, Jepsen said, “It is a simple correlation that, if a producer can increase marbling in beef more quickly, those cattle can be sent to market at a younger age; thus, a more moderate carcass weight.” After graduation, Jepsen plans to earn a master’s degree in animal science, with a specialization in meat science.
