Nicole Heslip (Michigan Farm Radio Network, East Lansing, MI) said she enjoys being a spokesperson for agriculture. “With less than two million farmers in the nation, I whole heartedly believe not only farmers, but family, friends and agribusiness professionals need to do their part in sharing the agricultural story. I love what my family has done on the farm. Being someone who speaks not only for my family but also for the industry is an amazing opportunity.”
