MEET THE TEAM

Kate Ziehm
kate ziehmKate Ziehm, President of Morning Ag Clips, is originally from New Hampshire, and graduated in 1997 from Cornell University with a degree in Animal Science and a concentration in Business Management and Marketing. While attending Cornell she was a member of the Cornell University Dairy Judging Team, President of the Cornell University Dairy Club and was the recipient of the 1997 Richard M. Kossoff Business Planning & Entrepreneurship Award.

Kate began her agricultural career in dairy farming. She was a very active member in 4-H, showing dairy cattle and competing at state and national dairy judging and Quiz Bowl competitions. Throughout high school and college she worked as a large animal veterinary technician in a private practice. After graduation Kate worked for Cargill as a dairy nutritionist. After having children she turned her efforts to motherhood while she broadened her knowledge and understanding of agriculture, growing and marketing pumpkins at her pumpkin and fall harvest stand as well as breeding and marketing a small herd of alpacas.

Kate currently resides in Greenwich, NY with her 3 boys; Tyler, Jacob, and Samuel.

If you don’t stop her, Brittany is the kind of person who will happily spend thirty minutes rambling about heirloom tomato varieties and seed saving before realizing she’s put half the room to sleep. The other half, she hopes, is chatting right along with her (because come on, who doesn’t love tomatoes?).

Besides being excited about farming – she’s got a Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture from University of Vermont and owns a tiny farm – Brittany has a background in both the publishing and media industries. She’s worked with everything from eBooks to television the past few years, living all over the northeast U.S. in the process. At Morning Ag Clips, Brittany combines her passions to bring you the latest agriculture news, issues and editorials.

Mike’s first brush with agriculture was wrangling turkeys and pigs in the barnyard on the family farm when he was 3 years old, and his farming resume only increased from there. From raising cattle and training horses to tending the expansive family garden and haying 40 acres of hay fields, farming was a major part of growing up.

Mike was born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and he has lived in five more states and another country, during both his tour in the U.S. Air Force and then pursuing his career. A journalist by trade, Morning Ag Clips allowed him to combine his writing and editing skills with his agriculture background.
