Dawn Caldwell is a very busy woman. Besides helping to run her family’s cow-calf operation in north central Kansas, not far from where they live in Clay County, Nebraska, the wife and mother of two works as head of governmental affairs for the Aurora Cooperative. In addition, she serves on the board of the Federation of State Beef Councils, and is treasurer of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA).
As a cattle producer, Dawn believes that USFRA is doing something that no single organization can do alone – dialogue with consumers about what agriculture is and does. “This is the one place where all of agriculture comes together as a community to send that good message about what very few of us in the country are doing to help keep food and fuel and fiber available,” she said. “Individually we can do good things, together we can do really great things.”
