Robert Meireis

Robert Meireis comes from a small town in Gill, Colorado, where he spent his formative years on his family’s dairy farm and attended school in Kersey. Immersed in the workings of a dairy farm, he acquired a myriad of skills while maintaining close ties with his family within a business setting, navigating through both prosperous and challenging times. This upbringing laid the foundation for his pursuit of an associate degree in Soil and Crop Sciences from Aims Community College, with a focus on dual majors in Agriculture Business Management and Soil and Crop Sciences, complemented by a minor in Agroecosystems.

Transitioning to Colorado State University, Robert actively engages in extracurricular activities such as the agronomy club and the Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Sciences (MANRRS) organization, all while balancing his academic endeavors with part-time work on the family farm. Despite his aspirations to advance in the agricultural industry and contribute to its enhancement while aiding others, he remains rooted in his familial ties and hometown community. Robert is deeply inspired by his family’s unwavering support and the opportunities they have provided through their sacrifices. He harbors a fervent desire to reciprocate their investment by channeling the skills and knowledge gained from his education and industry experience back into both his family and his local community.
