Bio:  The reason I want to continue to service on the NAFB Board of Directors is two fold. I want to utilize my my board experience after serving two years as the NAFB South Region Vice President and then moving right into the current Vice President role  as the next President Elect/ The other reason, I have a heart for this organization and a heart to serve. In addition, I can offer continuity to the organization based upon my most recent experience with NAFB and been a solid, reliable board member. I don't take serving lightly or for granted. I am a good listener and have acted on member ideas and would like to do more work on those ideas to ensure we remain stable and viable as we move forward as an organization and ensure that we have a solid succession plan in place for the board and all NAFB members.

As a 21-year veteran of farm broadcasting, Lorrie Boyer has covered several intriguing issues at local, state and national levels, building a long-standing relationship with every Ag organization in the process.

Being a dedicated professional, Lorrie worked as a Fort Morgan based KSIR Radio Farm Director and Morning Show Host for 12 years. Before that she was the Farm Director at KLMR Radio for five years and then the Farm Broadcaster and KVAY for 4 years- both stations are in Lamar, CO. She also founded and anchored the Colorado Agriculture News Network for five years before successfully merging it with another Ag entity.

She recently served as a  two-year National Association of Farm Broadcasting Board Member and is currently the Vice President.

Motivated by an intense desire for Ag-Vocacy and telling the farming and ranching story, Lorrie expressed creativity in carrying out Ag news, market reports and special human interest stories; which won her awards not only with the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Association, but with the Colorado Broadcasters Association as well. She was also named “Friend of Ag” for several youth and state based Ag organizations, including 4H and regional FFA Chapters, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Colorado Association of Conservation Districts, a Colorado Independent Cattle Growers Association and the Colorado Corn Growers Association.

Boyer likes to see herself as a rolling stone, ever ready to take on challenges with zeal and precision.

When she isn’t broadcasting, Lorrie loves engaging in CrossFit and Toastmasters. She is a certified 4H Horse Show judge from Brush and is married and blessed with two sons, Blake and Brodie, aged 14 and 18.
