The 2021 Recipient

Craig Breja

“Currently I work at Southwest Pork as the GDU Lead while also completing my BS in Animal Science at Kansas State University. After graduating, I will be pursuing a MS in Monogastric Nutrition. I have been involved in the swine industry all my life and I’ve managed to turn my passion into a growing career. When I’m not working, I enjoy podcasts and taking time to examine scholarly articles concerning pork production in order to become a more well-rounded stockman.”
