Agriculture is the leading industry in Stanislaus County and the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau, established in 1914, has maintained a mission to serve and support local agriculturalists ever since. But how much do Stanislaus County residents know about this industry and organization that supports it? Anna Genasci, the Director of Communication and Education at the Stanislaus Farm Bureau and host of their Farm Bureau Foodies program on Facebook, wants to make sure that members and guests of the American Association of University Women (AAUW), Oakdale-Riverbank-Escalon Branch know what the Farm Bureau is and what they are up to. To this end, Genasci will speak to them at their Feb. 9 dinner meeting.

Before becoming the Bureau’s Director of Communication and Education, Genasci worked at Foster Farms in live production, then pursued and received certification from the Department of Pesticide Regulation. She became a pesticide inspector for Stanislaus County and is often a frequent guest speaker to ag students at MJC. She majored in Animal Science at Modesto Junior College and received her Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, Chico in Agricultural Communications. Genasci and her family now reside in Oakdale.
