My name is J.W. Schroeder, Dairy Specialist for the NDSU Extension Service. Welcome.

At year’s end, I will have dedicated 40 years and seven months to serving the citizens of North Dakota and the NDSU Extension Service. Much of what I have accomplished is due in part to my clientele, none of whom are dearer to me than the dairy farm families of this state. They deserve the best the Land Grant University system can provide. I have decided it is time for me to step-aside and make way for the next NDSU Extension dairy specialist. While I still have some unfinished professional goals, I am finding where the ‘Spirit is still willing, the flesh is becoming weak’. Therefore, for both professional and personal reasons, I am announcing my retirement effective December 31, 2015.

Collectively, we can be proud of our industry’s contribution to the state’s agriculture. I sincerely believe that North Dakota is poised for future dairy growth, if only we allow it to happen. And, while I will soon be labelled “retired”, I assure you that I am merely being “recycled”.

To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” For me, the time has come for my next life’s journey. Thank you all for being such an important part of my career and my life.

Happy trails, and may God bless each and every one of you.
