We are so excited to share this year's lineup of speakers with you!

Amanda Radke
"Legacy Building Through Advocacy"

Amanda Radke is a fifth generation rancher from Mitchell, S.D., who has dedicated her career to serving as a voice for the nation’s farmers and ranchers. Radke regularly tackles industry is-sues as a columnist and speaker. A former National FFA Extemporaneous Speaking Champion and National Beef Ambassador, Radke has spent the last 15 years on the road fighting for the agriculture, rural America, and the western way of life. She’s gone head-to-head against animal rights activists, environmental ex-tremists, politicians, and celebrities who seek to eliminate animal agriculture. She believes food security is national security, and her work is focused on keeping producers on the land and ensuring every citizen has access to safe, affordable and nutritious food in this country. Radke is the author of seven agriculturally-accurate children’s books, and her goal is to help promote agricultural literacy in schools. Radke is also a homeschooling mom of four and is de-termined to teach the next generation about where their food comes from and to celebrate the hard-working people in rural America who provide us with the essentials of life.
