JO In Action: Amanda Zaluckyj

Earlier this month, Jones Obenchain’s  Amanda Zaluckyj gave the keynote address at the Michigan Farm Bureau District 9 Agricultural Summit. The event took place at Crystal Mountain resort in Thompsonville, Michigan. It was the county annual meeting for Benzie-Mainstee, Missauka, Northwest, and Wexford counties.

As part of her keynote address, she shared with those in attendance her background in agriculture and why she decided to start writing her blog, The Farmer’s Daughter USA. Amanda shared some red flags that indicate to her the importance of connecting with consumers. She explained how ag-vocating makes a difference and how everyone can put a face to modern agriculture.

Amanda also expressed how impressed she’s been with Michigan Farm Bureau’s commitment to agriculture-friendly public policy.  She also commented that “The organization does a wonderful job of building relationships with elected officials, fostering leadership in members, and sharing agriculture with community children.”

Amanda was grateful to District 9 for having her and allowing her to share her story. She had a lot of fun and enjoyed meeting so many people who are passionate about agriculture!
