Charitee Seebecker recently joined the Mid-West Farm Report team as a farm broadcaster.
Seebecker learned first-hand the work ethic and dedication of Wisconsin farmers, growing up on her family’s dairy farm in Mauston.
Seebecker’s passion for agriculture began on that farm where feeding calves, milking cows, and learning from her dad kept her busy. She was very active in 4-H and FFA exhibiting dairy cattle and hogs at various levels as well as served in many leadership roles in each. She shared her knowledge of agriculture while serving as a public relations professional for both the fair and agriculture industry as the Juneau County Fairest of the Fair.
Those experiences growing up helped Seebecker drive her dedication to agriculture further by obtaining an Agriculture Business degree with a Communications and Marketing emphasis at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Throughout college she was very active in the Pioneer Dairy Club, Agriculture Business Club, Ceres Women’s Agricultural Fraternity, and served as co-president of the National Agri-Marketing Association.
Upon graduation in May 2018, Seebecker served as an Ameri-Corps Farm to School Specialist for Juneau County and a news broadcaster for Hometown Life News in Tomah. Seebecker was also selected as a finalist for the Alice in Dairyland program. She received a certificate from the state of Wisconsin for agricultural communications and marketing.
Prior to joining the Mid-West Family Broadcasting team, Seebecker was the Director of Sales and Membership at the Wisconsin Holstein Association.
Seebecker is excited to help tell the story of Wisconsin’s diverse agriculture industry with people of all ages.
