The Ag Division of Lessiter Media is pleased to announce that Dan Crummett will take on an expanded role at Lessiter Media editorial team as a contributing editor in 2023.
Crummett is a veteran ag journalist who has freelanced for Lessiter Media for a decade and has contributed content for No-Till Farmer, Strip-Till Farmer, Cover Crop Strategies, Farm Equipment, Farm Innovations and Precision Farming Dealer. In recent years, he’s also contributed as technical editor for Ag Equipment Intelligence’s custom research offering.
His expanded role includes his reoccurring “Ahead of the Curve” columns as well as additional in-depth interviewing, writing and podcast work. He’ll also contribute to the presentation and speaker selections for the firm’s live and virtual event lineups.
“We’re excited to further tap into Dan’s experience in our coverage for conservation-minded farmers,” says Michaela Paukner, No-Till Farmer managing editor. “Dan is passionate about no-tillage and gives us a ‘boots on the ground’ presence in a different part of the country from his home in Oklahoma. Our entire editorial team will be further leveraging his vast experience and expertise in delivering actionable reporting for our audiences.”
A U.S. Army veteran who served in Vietnam, Crummett wrote for the Associated Press and the Ag Information Office at his alma mater, Oklahoma State University, before starting a 29-year editorial career with Farm Progress Companies. He has been operator of DMC Communications since 2013.
