WASHINGTON, November 9, 2020 — Agri-Pulse is pleased to announce that Danielle Brinkmann has joined the digital media company as its western sales associate.

“Danielle will support the expansion of Agri-Pulse West subscriptions, advertising and event sponsorship in the California market,” said Jason Lutz, Agri-Pulse sales and marketing manager. “We’ve experienced steady growth since our launch in 2019 and look forward to continuing that upward trend.”

Danielle is a 2018 graduate of the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana where she majored in Crop Science with a concentration in Crop Agribusiness. During her time at the University of Illinois, she was actively involved in 4-H House Cooperative Society and the Collegiate Farm Bureau.

After college, she pursued a career in agribusiness and worked with Climate FieldView to help farmers collect data and improve their productivity. She has also worked in the renewable energy industry for RPS Solar Pumps, a solar water pump company.

She grew up on a grain and Angus cattle operation in southern Illinois, where her family continues to farm. Danielle attributes much of her success to 4-H and FFA which eventually led her to receive her American FFA Degree and serve as state chair for the Illinois State 4-H Leadership Team. She now resides in Sacramento, Calif.

“It will be great to have Danielle working with readers and sponsors to expand our reach to key influencers across California,” stated Sara Wyant, President & Publisher. “While many publishers in that market have been pulling back, we plan to forge ahead with our expansion and providing top-notch coverage.”
