Gabby Wormuth (Domagala) grew up on her family’s small dairy farm in Lewis County. She graduated from Cobleskill in 2017, earning her Associates Degree in Agricultural Business and Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science, with a focus in Dairy. After graduation, she helped manage a large dairy operation in central New York and was a calf nutrition consultant for a milk replacer company. She specializes in on-farm troubleshooting with herd management practices, Spanish translations, cattle reproduction, calf & heifer raising and human resource management.
Outside of work, Gabby enjoys making memories with her one year old son, Liam. In addition, she spends her free time milking her cows and growing her herd of show cattle. Gabby looks forward to her younger five siblings showing her cattle at the county fair and farming with family.
“I am excited that my role of Dairy & Livestock Specialist will offer me the opportunity to give back and support the hardworking farmers in an industry that I am so passionate about.”
