Agri News, editor, Linda Grosskopf

Like Agri-News, Linda Grosskopf is a native of the great state of Montana. Ranch-raised and college-educated, Linda has been Agri-News editor since February 1996. She's the author of "On Flatwillow Creek: The History of Montana's N Bar Ranch," and in her spare time she likes to help old folks preserve their memories for the next generations. She lives east of Billings-within a couple of miles from where she was born and raised-with a husband, a Russian cat, assorted horses, and a whole kennel full of Border Collies. She has a passion for the written word and all things Western. She's patriotic, out-spoken, independent, conservative, loyal, humorous, and politically incorrect. She's also dedicated to bringing her readers the best each week has to offer in a unique blend of current events, history, western trivia, humor, and nostalgia-served up in a combination of prose, poetry, and photographs old and new. She greets each issue of Agri-News with enthusiasm, and she invites you to do the same!
