Meet your Sullivan County Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator, Brooke Stefancik. Brooke grew up running around her grandparent's small grain and cattle farm in Linton. Her passion for plants and animals started in 4-H where she loved showing all her animals, cooking foods for judging, exhibiting garden projects, and creating soil and water project videos. She earned two degrees from Purdue University, including a B.S in Animal Science and M.S. in Agronomy. Her career passion is helping clients with soil tests, hay/pasture improvement, and grazing livestock systems. At home, she has a small hay field she manages and produces just enough hay to provide for her horse and her niece's 4-H goat project. Brooke also loves gardening and cooking up international foods. Ask her about her trips to Guinea, Haiti, or Romania if you see her out and about!

Please take a moment to see what Purdue Extension has to offer. If you have any questions, or would like more specific information, please send me an email or give me a call!
