Andy Fisher

A fourth-generation farmer, Andy Fisher, Farm and Industry Short Course (FISC) ’99, grew up on a dairy in Valders, Wisconsin. In January 2004, he co-founded Riverside Dairy LLC in nearby Reedsville. There, he manages almost 800 cattle and farms about 750 acres of herd-feeding crops. Riverside uses research-proven methods to keep its cows comfortable and happy. As a result, the herd produces an impressive 10 million pounds of milk per year. Fisher also makes caring for his commu­nity a high priority and takes significant mea­sures to reduce the environmental impact of his farm. His on- and off-farm achievements earned him the Wisconsin Outstanding Young Farmer award in 2018.
