Goehring appoints new marketing specialists

BISMARCK – Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring has appointed Jamie Good and Sonia Mullally as marketing specialists in the North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA).

“Jamie and Sonia both have agricultural backgrounds and bring a variety of useful skills to the department,” Goehring said. “Their expertise is especially valuable as our marketing programs, such as the Local Foods Initiative and Pride of Dakota, continue to grow.”  

Raised on a Wisconsin dairy farm, Good graduated from University of Wisconsin-River Falls with degree in animal science and from Westwood College in Denver with a degree in graphic design. He worked in the livestock industry in Colorado and in marketing for a nationally-known feed company in Iowa before moving to North Dakota.

Good will be responsible for NDDA's local foods initiative and for the Agriculture in the Classroom program.

Mullally grew up on a farm near Braddock and graduated from Concordia College, Moorhead, with degree in communications. She was a writer and graphic designer for the Pierce County Tribune in Rugby and the National Sunflower Association before joining NDDA.

Goehring said Mullally will work with North Dakota commodity groups, the Pride of Dakota program and with the organic program.

Both Good and Mullally will report to the director of NDDA's Marketing and Information Division.
