Jamie May Purfeerst

Senior Associate Editor

Jamie is the newest addition to the BEEF editorial team. She is in charge of our online and digital communications, manages our monthly magazine production, and orchestrates our social media efforts. Thus, she’s instrumental in executing the creation and production of the editorial product, with special emphasis in building synergies between our electronic and print products. Jamie is a December 2010 graduate of North Dakota State University (NDSU) where she double-majored in agriculture communications and advertising. She is originally from southern Minnesota, growing up on a small hobby farm just south of the BEEF offices in Bloomington. Jamie has an ongoing passion for livestock showmanship and management that began with 4-H and FFA activities as a youngster and continued to college where she was a decorated member of the NDSU Livestock Judging Team.

In addition to her lifelong involvement in livestock, Jamie’s industry background includes communications internships with the American Angus Association and the North American International Livestock Exposition. Her enthusiasm for the livestock industry, combined with her knowledge of the growing social media and online world, makes her a valuable asset to the BEEF editorial goal of serving our readers.
