UACD Annual Convention

2021 UACD Convention.
November 2-3 
Dixie Convention Center

Lane Nordlund, born and raised in Central Montana, has been involved in production agriculture his entire life. In high school, when Lane was not team roping or tie-down roping, he was behind the microphone announcing the rodeo. Lane had the honor of being elected as the Montana FFA State President and was also the National FFA Officer Candidate for the State of Montana.

While attending Montana State University-Bozeman Lane joined the Alpha Gamma Rho agricultural fraternity and got his start being an advocate for agriculture. 

After completing his degree, he became a full-time agricultural broadcaster. Lane’s reports can be heard on over 70 radio stations in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Additionally, TV viewers can see Lane every morning or catch him during the noon hour for live broadcasts consisting of the most informative agricultural news in the region.

TV viewers can also find Lane reporting for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s weekly TV show Cattlemen to Cattlemen which airs on RFD TV.  Lane can also be heard anywhere there is a smartphone or computer through his personal podcast and on all social media platforms. 

Being a young person involved in production agriculture and agriculture media he has a unique view of the industry. This view helps him make a personal connection with his audience whether that is in a packed convention hall or the local café. 

When he’s not working you will find Lane anywhere there is a microphone, usually picking his guitar and singing his favorite country music classics.
