Ellis joins Idaho Farm Bureau as media contact


POCATELLO – Veteran journalist Sean Ellis has joined Idaho Farm Bureau Federation as publications editor and will also handle media inquiries for IFBF.

Ellis joins Farm Bureau after working for Capital Press, a weekly farm publication that focuses on agricultural issues in the Northwest, for seven years.

During that time, he covered a wide variety of issues important to farmers and ranchers, from water, wolves, crop diseases and pests, government regulation and exports, to organic production, agricultural research, farm labor and genetically modified crops.

He also covered the Idaho Legislature for Capital Press for eight sessions, writing stories about dozens of bills and their potential impact on Idaho’s agricultural industry.
