Jacki Moegenburg of Ozaukee County has been appointed to Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Promotion and Education Committee by the state Board of Directors. She will fill out the term previously held by George Mroch of Walworth County.
“Jacki’s passion for connecting people of all ages to agriculture makes her the perfect fit for the Promotion and Education committee,” Wisconsin Farm Bureau President Jim Holte said.
Jacki owns Roden Barnyard Adventures, an agritourism business based on her family’s dairy farm in West Bend. After graduating from UW – River Falls in 2013, Jacki found her spot back in the family business by opening the farm for tours to community members. She has a strong passion for agriculture and education and is excited to share her passion and agricultural lifestyle with consumers of all ages. Jacki and her husband, Brett, enjoy being able to raise their daughter, Gracelyn, around the family’s farm. Jacki is active in her county Farm Bureau, secretary of the county Dairy Promotion group and a 4-H leader. She will represent District 1 on the Promotion and Education Committee. District 1 includes the counties of Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha.
The Promotion and Education Committee is a group of nine leaders who represent the nine Wisconsin Farm Bureau districts. Committee members develop, implement and promote projects and programs which build awareness and understanding of agriculture and provide leadership development for the agricultural community.
The committee’s chair, Andrea Brossard of Burnett, sits on the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Board of Directors as the program’s representative. Additional committee members include Vice-Chair Darby Sampson of Melrose, Katie Roth of Platteville, Lynn Dickman of Plover, Rosalie Geiger of Reedsville, Katelin Steege of Hortonville, and Kay Gilbertson of Elk Mound. The Promotion and Education Program is funded by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.
