By Farm & Food Care

Katherine happily admits she doesn’t “fit the regular farmer mold” and wonders at the direction her life has taken.

A “city girl” from Chatham-Kent, she studied to become a veterinary technician and, while in college, took a placement working with pigs. ¬†She was instantly captivated and now works on a pig farm in Lambton County caring for newborn piglets, where she finds it rewarding to use her veterinary training to better care for the young animals.

And what does she do in her free time? Spends time working with cows on another farm of course!
