Speaker Bio

Amanda Radke is a fifth generation rancher from Mitchell, SD. Alongside her husband, Tyler, and their four children, they operate Radke Land & Cattle, an Angus seedstock operation.

A former National FFA Extemp Speaking Champion and National Beef Ambassador, Radke has spent nearly 20 years on the road fighting to keep agricultural families on the land, rural main street businesses thriving, and an abundance of food on the dinner table.

Amanda is an entrepreneur at heart and wears many hats, in addition to being a ranch mom. Shes the host of The Heart of Rural Americapodcast and radio show, a syndicated columnist, a western retailer, a cattle industry consultant with CK6, a partner in a new auction platform called Bid On Beef, and a childrens book author focused on promoting ag literacy in schools.

She also currently serves as an appointee on the National Agriculture Campaign Advisory Council, where she provides industry insights on ag policy discussions to the U.S. House of Representatives Agriculture Committee.

And when shes not on the road, you can find her wrangling cattle and rowdy kids. Shes most at home on the ranch, where her love of the land, livestock, and community is rooted in boots-on-the ground work with plenty of muddy boots and dirty coveralls to prove it.
