Former Governor’s Office of Ag Policy Director Warren Beeler will continue spreading the message of Kentucky Agriculture with the Kentucky Agriculture in the Classroom program.

Director Jennifer Elwell announced that Beeler, who is known as Mr. Agriculture, will join the Ag in the Classroom program as the official EngAGe Kentucky Program Speaker and Outreach Director. The new role will allow Beeler to continue speaking to students, civic and leadership groups about farming issues and the importance of agriculture literacy.

EngAGe Kentucky is a joint program of the Kentucky Livestock Coalition and TeachKyAG, with support from the Kentucky Agriculture Development Board and the Kentucky Soybean Board. The goal of the program is to encourage discussions about food production issues with students and the public so they may have a better understanding of sustainability, animal welfare, and food safety from the farm community’s point of view.

Both Beeler and Director Jennifer Elwell have been through the national Engage program national speakers training programs and have then provided trainings in Kentucky to the local agriculture advocates.
