Meet Our Team
The CAC Media Group started back in 2017 with a series of podcasts that quickly turned into a weekly ag radio segment. Print media soon followed as we took on various roles writing for local, state, and national publications. In addition to broadcast and print media, we offer a variety of conference organization services including social media management, website updates, and speaker/presentation direction and more! If you would like additional information about our services, please contact our team at .
Living on a diversified crop farm and raising cattle my whole life has allowed me to develop and grow my passion for the agricultural industry. I have been showing cattle for as long as I can remember and judge livestock competitively across the country. My roles on the team are many. I do interviews at the local, state, and national level for our Friday morning radio show, provide conference media services and manage our website. I recently finished up on the video shoot for A Showman’s Story and hope to learn more about film making over the course of the next few years. In addition to this, I will be hosting our newly launched television series, Agri-Vision and I am also preparing to give a TEDx Talk about misconceptions within animal agriculture. My future plans include majoring in ag communications and participating in livestock judging at the collegiate level.
I live on a diverse grain and livestock farm in Eastern Iowa. We raise corn, beans, and alfalfa and also operate a custom baling business making both round and square bales. We finish out feeder cattle utilizing newer monoslope buildings for faster gains and better feed efficiency. I have shown a calf at the county fair for the past 10 years and I am currently serving as the Jackson County Beef Queen. I believe that promoting quality beef products is key to keeping the demand high and our cattle markets on the rise. I am excited to use my time with the CAC Media Group to deepen my knowledge of the agricultural industry. Be sure to check out my fun weekly column “Kesley’s Corral” in the Clinton County Farm Bureau Spokesman and on our homepage.
My name is Carter Mommsen and I am the newest member of the CAC Media Group. Like the rest of my teammates I come from a traditional crop and livestock background and have spent years building my own herd of Angus cattle. What drew me to this team was the chance to expand my digital design skills. I am responsible for the branding and marketing for our television show, Agri-Vision and when I am not working on a new design, you will probably find me behind the camera shooting footage for our field reports. Cattle play a big role in my life and I am excited to expand my knowledge of the beef industry as we look ahead to a new video project in 2021. I am lucky to have the opportunity to continue making connections in agriculture and I look forward to using ag media to bridge the growing gap between producers and consumers.
As far back as I can remember I have played a role in the family farm whether it was riding in the semi on the way to ADM, or helping to grind corn for our cattle. I am currently a senior in Eastern Iowa and I have grown up in a diversified grain and livestock operation. I exhibit livestock at the local and state level and for the past three years I have served as the Clinton County Cattlemen’s Beef Princess and Queen. Having these different backgrounds has helped to open my eyes and grow my love for agriculture and the agricultural industry. I love spreading the positive message of agriculture through the media. My role in our group is to do local and state interviews, host our radio show, provide conference media coverage, and help with our new TV show, Agri-Vision. I have learned so much through all of my experiences in agriculture and although I am unsure of my future plans, I know agriculture will always be a part of my life.

My journey with the CAC Media Group began back in 2017 when the idea for this group started with a single conversation and has evolved into thousands of conversations. After years of working on the sidelines of the agricultural industry, I decided it was time to transition to a full time career. A teacher at heart, I believe that students should be exposed to real life experiences and when given the chance, they can do incredible things. I chose ag media because agriculturalist are welcoming and eager to share their knowledge and experience and their stories inspire me to go further. I believe that everyone we meet has the chance to be the conversation that launches a thousand more.
