Vets on Call

Arndt Farms is a family farm still operating more than 50 years after it was founded in Illinois by Ed Arndt, Sr. Now Ed's teenaged granddaughter Katie is stepping up to learn livestock farming and help the farm succeed, making her the fifth generation Arndt to practice farming.

Meet Our Facilitators


Kellie Claflin

Agriculture Teacher

Gillett High School, WI


I love focusing on leadership and careers and helping students become better communicators.


Facilitates: Marketing Your Ag Program

Best thing about CoP:

I truly enjoy being able to grab an idea from another teacher to implement in my classroom. As an early-career teacher, CoP has definitely saved me more than once! I also love to read the Day in the Life blogs to get an insight into other ag programs.

Why she volunteered: As an FFA member and ag student Kellie was taught the importance of living to serve, and this is her way to give back to the ag education community.


Resource in your community on CoP you would like to highlight: The PR resources from MAAE are phenomenal and filled with great and easy ideas to promote your ag program!


To volunteer, contact CoP administrator Julie Fritsch, or learn more by reading this facilitator position description.
