Education: B.S. Western Illinois University

Wilcoxen grew up on a row crop, hay, and beef herd operation. I went to Spoon River College, got my A.S. in Ag Science, and was on the judging team. Then I transferred to WIU where I got my B.S. in Animal Science with a focus in Beef Production. When I graduated from WIU I went back home to the family operation for about three years. Then I came back to WIU and became the manager for both the beef herd and the Performance Bull Test.
