Tyne Morgan, host of the U.S. Farm Report, will serve as the moderator for Animal Agriculture Alliance’s 2017 Stakeholders Summit, May 3-4 in Kansas City, Mo.
Since 2014, Morgan has served as host of “U.S. Farm Report,” which has been on air for more than three decades. The program airs weekly on stations coast-to-coast. Morgan grew up in Missouri and has deep agricultural roots, getting started in public speaking through her involvement in The National FFA Organization. After getting her first agricultural broadcasting job in high school, Morgan went on to study agricultural journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
“I’m eager to host such an influential event within the animal agriculture industry,” said Morgan. “The livestock sector is currently in a unique position. With so much attention around both practices and production on and off the farm or ranch, I think this sector is in the prime position to shape the future by connecting to all areas of the food chain, from suppliers to consumers.”
The theme for the 2017 Summit is “Connect to Protect.” Whatever your role in animal agriculture – farmer to association executive, government official to agriculture or food company leader – the Summit is your chance to join a united force committed to protecting animal agriculture and finding solutions to the challenges you face.
