Meet the Leadership Series – Katelyn Dynneson
I am the 4th generation on my family’s operation where we run a custom back-grounding feedlot, cow-calf operation and we farm. I attended Montana State University and received a BS in Agricultural Business with a second major in Economics. I returned to the farm full-time after college and I have been loving every minute of it.
I work alongside my family every day on our operation and we all wear many different hats.
What sparked your interest in agriculture?
Plain and simple, I just love it. I couldn’t imagine there ever being a more rewarding career than this. I pride myself on raising safe and healthy food for others. The people in our industry make it worthwhile and I enjoy being able to work with my family.
What makes a great leader?
A great leader is somebody who can inspire others to be their very best. They aren’t necessarily the ones out in the lime light but instead the ones behind the scene supporting others.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
It’s my dream to learn how to break a team of horses! My favorite hobby is driving my team of Norwegian Fjords and someday I would like to be able to drive a multiple hitch or break my own team.
Where do you hope to be in five years?
I hope to be right where I am now, raising my own family on our operation.
What do you hope to gain from the leadership series?
I want to learn how to be the best steward of agriculture make our industry more successful. I want our industry to be here for my future children and grandchildren to enjoy.
