Meet Lori Deyoe. Farming is Lori’s heritage from several generations back on both sides of her family, and her work has always reflected that. She is a farmer’s daughter, the wife of a cattleman and mom to two children. Even her education, a degree in agricultural economics with minors in animal science and women’s studies from Kansas State University, is rooted in agriculture. Before Lori and her husband started a family, she worked as the assistant grain manager at an elevator in town. And currently, Lori coordinates logistics for their small beef feed yard in Ulysses, Kansas; handles the accounting; and writes on their blog about agriculture. No need to say it – this woman is all about farming.
When she isn’t working, Lori enjoys watching her kids do anything from gymnastics to just playing around and being silly. She also loves to read, referees junior high girls and boys basketball games and has started to pick up running for fun.
Lori was excited to join the CommonGround™ Kansas program in the summer of 2011 in order to start conversations with consumers about their food and the truth about how it’s raised.
