My name is Ray Kruse.  I grew up on a dairy farm in Northeast Iowa.  We have registered Brown Swiss cattle and raise alfalfa, corn and oats.  I am particularly interested in soil science which is what I have focused on in my studies for my B.S. and M.S.  I am also interested in gardening, and being creative with woodworking and building projects.
