Shane Robison has been chosen as the 2018 Oklahoma Dairy Ambassador. He is the son of Bret and Kathy Robison of Ripley, Oklahoma. Robison is an animal science
sophomore at Oklahoma State University where he lives and works at the OSU Ferguson Family Dairy Center.
Robison is the student council representative for the OSU Dairy Science Club, allowing him the opportunity to promote dairy at the college level.
“This interaction gives me the chance to communicate with others who are not connected to production agriculture,” he said.
As the Oklahoma Dairy Ambassador, Robison says he plans to work with both consumers and producers to understand the industry and the trials it faces today.
“We need someone who is directly involved with the industry and knows and understands the struggles we face and understands how to advocate to the public in order to promote the dairy
industry,” he said.
The dairy ambassador applicants competed in four categories: dairy knowledge test, written essay, prepared speech and an interview with a panel of judges. Robison will receive a
$1,000 scholarship from the Oklahoma dairy association, and an additional $1,000 from the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The Oklahoma Dairy Ambassador is a scholarship program hosted by the Oklahoma Purebred Dairy Association in conjunction with the Sooner State Dairy Show. The 91st Sooner
State Dairy Show was held in Stillwater July 11-14, 2018. Dairy Max and Southwest Dairy Farmers are contributing sponsors of the program.
