Darand Borneman joined DTS in the fall of 1991, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Dallas. Since then, DTS has offered him a wealth of both personal and professional relationships. A number of his closest friends were members of DTS, and even his wife of twelve years, Terri (Rolling), is a Little Sister. He and his wife now live in Milton, WI and they have two boys, Daniel Alexander and Noah Louis.
He graduated in 1995 with a BS in Food Science. Returning to the UW to complete his Masters in Food Science in 2008, his research centered on the predictive microbiology of pathogen growth in raw and ready-to-eat meat products. Darand created an interactive computer software program for use by meat processors. Models can be viewed and accessed on UW-Extension website.
