Crystal Bosek, Garfield, Minn., received the seventh annual Leonard and Vi Wulf Scholarship at the National Junior Limousin Show and Congress in Amarillo, Texas.
Bret Begert, director of junior activities for the North American Limousin Foundation, made the announcement during the awards banquet July 15, on behalf of the Wulf family.
Bosek, 19, has been a member of both the North American Limousin Junior Association and Minnesota Junior Limousin Association for three years. She will use the $500 Wulf scholarship to pursue studies in veterinary science and large animal reproduction at North Dakota State University. After graduation, she plans to pursue a career with Select Sires and expand her beef herd in Minnesota.
“As a mentor Crystal shared her knowledge, skills and animlas with other youth eager to learn about and be successful in the beef project,” wrote Jodi Hintzen, 4-H program coordinator, Douglas County, Minn., in recommending Bosek for the scholarship. “She has also been an exemplary leader in working to promote and organize community service projects”
Leonard and Vi Wulf, the founders of Wulf Limousin Farms, Morris, Minn., enabled the scholarship fund upon Leonard’s induction into the North American Limousin Hall of Fame in 2000. They and their family have had a leading role in making the Limousin breed one of the top seven in the United States.
