Lauren grew up in Boone county on a small family farm that raised Angus cattle and grew row crops. Upon graduating from High School, she decided to pursue her passion for agriculture by receiving a degree in Agricultural Communications from Iowa State University. She now enjoys sharing this passion with others as they learn the importance of agriculture to their everyday lives, and develop an appreciation of hard working Iowa farm families. Lauren currently lives with her husband, Zach, in rural Boone County.

Ag in the Classroom is funded through county Farm Bureaus. The Farm Bureaus offer their generous support of our program because agriculture is integral to the lives of all, and the goal is to educate students and the public about agriculture, so they may become informed consumers, knowledgeable about their world and food.
