Biography: Tosha grew up on a farm and cow/calf operation in South Dakota.

Once in graduate school, she was able to gain experience conducting feedlot research in Texas and Latin America. After completing an internship with Feedlot Health in the summer of 2016, she knew she wanted to return after finishing her doctorate. Tosha started as a consultant on the Individual Animal Management team in February of 2020.
