Anna Teeter is SHP’s newest team member, joining as a Field Manager covering Minnesota. Anna most recently received her master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from the Department of Soil Science. Her thesis evaluated preserving nitrogen from fall-applied dairy manure using nitrapyrin, a nitrification inhibitor, in combination with spring wheat as a fall cover crop.
“Anna is a great addition to the SHP Field Manager team. Her extensive experience working with diverse farming operations will bring a great perspective to Minnesota farmers,” commented SHP Field Team Director, Jack Cornell.
Anna received her undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison double majoring in Agronomy and Life Science Communication. Throughout her undergrad, Anna worked with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Forage Extension Specialist and gained experience working with a diverse group of farming operations. Additionally, Anna served as a Crop Scout at Tilth Agronomy out of Appleton, Wisconsin. Her combination of experience and education demonstrates her passion for communicating science.
“I am passionate about agriculture and enjoy opportunities to talk about science in an understandable way. I did not grow up on a farm, but my grandfather was a farmer and would tell stories about his operation. Working with farmers is my passion, and I am eager to get started,” said Teeter.
She grew up in Wisconsin and developed a passion for agriculture after showing horses in 4-H. Anna enjoys hiking, camping, and gardening in her free time.
