For more than 32 years, John Vogel has been a Farm Progress editor writing for farmers from the western Dakotas to the eastern Atlantic states. Since 1985, he’s been the editor of American Agriculturist – successor of three other Farm Progress publications in the Northeast.

Raised on an Iowa grain and beef farm, he double-majored in Animal Science and Ag Journalism at Iowa State. His passion for helping farmers and farm management skills led to his family farm’s first 209-bushel corn yield average in 1989.

John’s personal and professional missions have become an integral part of American Agriculturist’s mission: To anticipate and explore tomorrow’s farming needs and encourage positive change to keep family, profit and pride in farming.

John co-founded Pennsylvania Farm Link, a non-profit dedicated to helping young farmers start farming. It was a prototype for four similar Northeast groups and was responsible for creating three innovative state-supported young farmer financing and funding programs. His efforts led to development of the Mid-Atlantic Ag Computing and Electronic (ACE) Expo, two "Farms for the Future" conferences and two state ag workforce certification programs.

His publications have received countless awards, including the 2000 Folio "Gold Award" for editorial excellence, the 2001 National Association of Ag Journalists’ Mackiewicz Award and several Oscars in Agriculture.

Vogel is two-time winner of the Northeast Farm Communicators’ Farm Communicator of the Year award. He’s a National 4-H Foundation Distinguished Alumni, an honorary member of Alpha Zeta and was recently recognized in "Who’s Who in Executives and Professionals."
