AgChat website features Val Wagner on homepage
Val Wagner, a farmer from Monango, recently attended an AgChat workshop in Chicago to learn more about telling agriculture's story through social media. The result?
Val is a farm wife and mother of four (yes, four) boys. She is no stranger to social media, having been active on Twitter as wagfarms and "tweeting" for a heifer on the site as Cows_Life. But with the addition of her blog, Val has opened a window to the life of a farm couple, trying to provide food and fiber, raise a family and help dispel misconceptions that people have about agriculture, particularly animal agriculture, all at the same time.
It's a big job, but Val seems up to the challenge. Her passion for agriculture shines through in her posts.
Val and Mark are also members of the national YF&R Committee.
