#MyCALSWork: Working from home on a sheep farm

This week’s #MyCALSWork features Sarah Lien, the Endpoint Support Technologist in the CALS IT department. Sarah is currently working mostly remotely from her family farm in Cambridge, WI where she also helps manage the family sheep flock. As lambing season gets underway, Sarah shared a few pictures of the new lambs in the barn.

Sarah is occasionally joined in her home office by her nieces and nephews who are doing school remotely this year.

Cora (age 4) enjoyed the launch of the new Meat Science and Animal Biologics Discovery Building Website last fall. The playlist of meat-themed songs was a hit and so was the virtual confetti.

Thanks for sharing, Sarah!
