Logan Ipsen, Elk Grove, CA, will join the Western Livestock Journal (WLJ) staff serving as a field editor for the area of California, Nevada and Utah starting Jan. 1, 2012.

Ipsen was raised on a registered Angus and Hereford operation in Montpelier, ID, where he and his family sold seedstock bulls and females throughout the western U.S. as well as selling alfalfa and grass hay throughout the Intermountain West. Ipsen attended Utah State University and received a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and a minor in Agribusiness. During his education, he also fitted and showed cattle nationally, as well as fulfilling internship capacities in semen and feed sales.

Upon graduation, Ipsen worked for the American Angus Association as a regional manager serving producers in California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah. In this capacity, he served the membership as a liaison to the association headquarters, marketed Angus cattle, and sold ads for Angus Productions, Inc. In addition, Ipsen helped align the association’s commercial marketing efforts with livestock video auction companies.

“We are very excited to have Logan join the WLJ family. He has exceptional knowledge in the industry, along with the ability to work closely with producers in their livestock marketing efforts. He will be a great addition to our current field staff. Jerry York has been working a six-state area for WLJ the past 20 years and is ready to slow down and spend more time serving customers in the Northwest, but he will continue to be a familiar face around ringside,” said Pete Crow, WLJ publisher In his new role with WLJ, Ipsen will sell and coordinate ad sales, serve as a liaison between producers, advertisers and the Denver, CO, office, share current news and events from the West, and help build the readership in his territory.

“I am very excited for the opportunity to join the staff at the Western Livestock Journal and aim to continue the legacy and reputation the WLJ has built over the last 91 years,” says Ipsen. “I look forward to continuing to work with seed stock and commercial cattlemen in the West and helping them meet their marketing needs.”
