#WomenInAg recognizes the contributions of women involved in agriculture during Women’s History Month (March). AFBF is proud to salute Renee McCauley, a Michigan dairy farmer and Farm Bureau leader!

McCauley serves on the American Farm Bureau’s Promotion & Education Committee. She is also actively involved in Kent County Farm Bureau and Michigan Farm Bureau. She is a member and former chair of Michigan Farm Bureau’s Promotion & Education Committee and previously served on the state board of directors, and currently volunteers as a 4-H leader.

McCauley is passionate about sharing the story of farming, particularly through the lens of a camera. She also enjoys teaching others about advocating for agriculture through video marketing.

AFBF’s P&E Committee fills an important role in bridging the gap between farmers and consumers by providing tools and resources to other Farm Bureau members who are eager to help share agriculture’s story.
