Madison Mackley joins the Kansas Farm and Ranch Radio team as the Farm Director.
Madison graduated from the greatest university in the Midwest, Kansas State University, with a
Bachelor’s degree in Agronomy and a minor in Animal Science and Industry. In May 2018, Madison moved back to northwest Kansas to be the Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension Agent in Thomas County. She worked with area farmers and ranchers, as well as the county 4-H kids throughout her time in Extension. In September 2019, Madison left Extension to work full time on her family’s farm.
Countless hours in a combine cab, bumpy rides through the pastures feeding cattle, and many
karaoke sessions in a tractor cab while planting corn is how Madison spent some of her time
working on the farm. In July 2020, Madison joined the team as the Farm Director for the Kansas
Farm and Ranch Radio Network. Madison is living the best of both worlds being able to share
agriculture news and stories while still working on the farm herself. This is Madison’s first
experience being on-air, but her extensive knowledge of agriculture should serve her and the
listeners well. In her free time, you can find Madison playing (or napping) with her two dogs,
taking her niece and nephews on adventures, or in the middle of a field somewhere.
