This week’s ZimmCast continues my series visiting with farm organization Directors of Communications. At the Farm Progress Show I sat down with Caitlin Eannello, National Association of Wheat Growers, to talk about her career choice and what the challenges of the job are.
Caitlin does not have a farm background but does have a passion to help farmers and a love of food! Prior to joining NAWG she worked with BIO, the Biotech Innovation Organization, and that set her up for the transition to her current job.
As an added bonus in this program I’m including an example of Caitlin’s work. She set me up to interview the NAWG President, David Schemm, a Kansas farmer. David has been touring areas where wheat growers are suffering from drought conditions and we talk about their need for a new farm bill that takes into consideration resources to help them like crop insurance.
I hope you enjoy the program and thank you for listening!
