On this week’s episode, Bridgette shares her journey from her background in agriculture to her transition from being an agriculture teacher to pursuing a career as an agronomist. We’re also chatting about the power and significance of social media; connecting others and seizing opportunities in agriculture! Bridgette also  highlights the increasing role and representation of women in the field, while reflecting on the most rewarding aspects of being a rural woman in her career.

Bridgette Readel, farm kid extraordinaire, NDSU grad, and passionate agronomist is from Wishek ND and now lives in Hunter. She is a very active FFA alumnus and past state officer.  

Bridgette and her husband Randy, are both heavily involved in ag where he is a Dairyland Seed rep and she is semi-retired from a 25-year career with Corteva Agriscience.  They are parents of two adult children who are mostly off the payroll. Although she graduated as a high school ag teacher, Bridgette is now busy teaching adults regarding production agriculture and truly enjoys sharing the bright and positive message of ag in North Dakota.
