Brekke Munks is one of Agoro Carbon Alliance's Carbon Cropping Agronomist. She grew up in rural Wyoming on an elk refuge surrounded by rangeland and cattle. She fell in love with agriculture when she worked at a local vet clinic and realized that quality forage or feed is vital for health livestock. She went to school to become a vet but luckily was asked to get a master's degree in plant breeding for specialty oilseeds. This venture made her then think about the fact that a good medium is needed to grow forage in order to grow healthy animals. This sparked her interest in soils, that led to her Ph.D. Brekke believes that farmers and ranchers are exceptional land managers and she is inspired to find ways to make their livelihoods sustainable!
