On the evening of Monday, March 23, 2015 guests attending the Preston Area Community Foundation (PACF) annual dinner and auction will have the pleasure of listening to guest speaker Lynn Ketelsen, Farm Director for the Linder Farm Network.

Ketelsen’s broadcasts are heard on over 40 radio stations in Minnesota and Iowa with complete farm information each day, according to his biography on the Linder Farm Network website linderfarmnetwork.com. He is also a regular contributor on “This Week in Agribusiness with Orion Samuelson” nationwide on RFD-TV, and is Farm Director for KEYC TV in Mankato, Minn.

Ketelsen was named 2005 “Farm Broadcaster of the Year” in the United States by the National Association of Farm Broadcasters, has been named the nation’s top ag communicator four times, and has been recognized for his reporting by such groups as the National Corn Growers, American Soybean Association, and the National AgriMarketing Association.

Additionally, Ketelsen has served as President of the National Association of Farm Broadcasters and has traveled to all 50 states and many countries around the world as a farm broadcaster, states his biography. Ketelsen is the only Minn. ag communicator to have a day proclaimed in his honor by the Governor of the state of Minn.

His popular “Ketelsen Comments” is a favorite among both listeners and readers when he tells it like it is about the major events shaping agriculture, states the biography. Ketelsen is also known as the “voice of Minn. agriculture” and will surely have some very interesting comments.

Ketelsen will speak about how the agriculture industry and consumers have the same interests and concerns during the banquet which will be a very interesting subject to many in Fillmore County.

Ketelsen states, “This is a great opportunity to talk to farmers and those who live in town on the importance of agriculture in southeastern Minnesota,” and he is looking forward to the event, saying, “My job as farm broadcaster takes me literally all over the world, but the opportunity to speak to a group in rural areas and small communities is the best part of my job,” as he enjoys speaking with residents of small communities and the farmers in the area.

The ninth annual dinner, auction, and celebration will be held at the Branding Iron restaurant in Preston, Minn. with social hour from 5:30 - 6:30 pm .....
