Agri-Pulse Communications proudly announces the addition of veteran farm policy reporter Jacqui Fatka as associate editor to continue expanding the firm’s coverage of key food, feed, fiber and farm policy issues.

“Jacqui is an experienced journalist with a strong reputation for providing readers with balanced and comprehensive coverage,” says Agri-Pulse Founder and Editor Sara Wyant. “Her expertise, drive and dedication will be valuable assets on our team and will play an integral role in growing Agri-Pulse’s already outstanding coverage.”

Fatka most recently worked as a policy editor for Farm Progress, where she covered a wide variety of topics including the farm bill, agricultural trade, federal regulations and court rulings. During her 19-year career at Farm Progress, she also covered grain and biofuels issues for the weekly newspaper Feedstuffs, providing news and insights related to the feed and protein industries.

A native of Iowa, Fatka grew up on a diversified livestock and grain farm in the southwest part of the state. She graduated from Iowa State University with a bachelor’s degree in journalism and mass communications and a minor in agriculture education. She currently lives with her husband and three children on a small acreage north of Columbus, Ohio. She also serves as executive secretary-treasurer for the North American Agricultural Journalists (NAAJ) where she helps coordinate member activities.

Fatka will join the Agri-Pulse editorial staff Oct. 17. Congrats to both Jacqui and Agri-Pulse!
