let's talk social strategy

i believe...

in breaking a sweat

Because hard work builds character. Some of the greatest life lessons are learned baling hay, walking beans and caring for livestock.

i believe...

in the ag lifestyle

Because there’s nothing like working, playing and living right alongside family.

i believe...

in God's miracles

Because you can’t help but see them in a new sprout popping out of the crusted soil, or in the sweetness of a newborn calf.

i believe...

in having fun

Because laughter is good for the soul. And life's really just too short not to.

I come from a long line of hard-working farm men and women, who instilled their love of life on the farm in their little girl. I cherish memories of playing in the beans, combine floor naps on dad’s carhartt and frequent four-wheeler rides.

Even though I had no clue how to go about the process, Erin made it very easy for me. She was able to understand what I wanted in a website.

-Sandy Grant, Dependable Livestock Testing

When we get stuck on an idea, Erin has a great way of guiding us and helping us mature and illustrate the message we want to deliver.

kind words

-Wayne Craig, Cactus Feeders

Erin has figured out how to use her talents to tell agriculture’s story with the kind of grace, class and creativity that draws in our non-ag friends - and even the naysayers.

kind words

-Holly Spangler, Penton Agriculture

Erin is extremely talented, yet she remains so humble and kind. She has a heart of gold and an eye for things that not all of us can just pick out.

kind words

-Cassi Schreifer, Schreifer Red Angus
