Berg Named Communicator of the Year

She was honored for her expertise and professionalism in delivering educational programs and information to the public through several types of media.

The North Dakota chapter of the Association for Communication Excellence and North Dakota State University’s Agriculture Communication Department have selected Mary Berg as the 2015 communicator of the year.

Berg is the NDSU Extension Service livestock environmental management specialist at the Carrington Research Extension Center.

The Communicator of the Year Award recognizes an individual who displays exceptional expertise and professionalism in delivering educational programs and information to the public through several types of media.

Berg joined NDSU Extension in 2012. She helps lead the livestock environmental management team, which has held several workshops for producers and been invited to speak at other educational programs. She has authored or co-authored publications and updated several older publications, and helps develop and narrates videos that have been posted on YouTube.

In addition, Berg communicates with her audiences through news releases and social media such as Facebook and Twitter, and makes sure the livestock environmental management Web page is current. She also was instrumental in the development of Center Points, an information-sharing page on the Carrington REC’s website, and she electronically alerts potential users to new posts.

Berg grew up on a farm near Driscoll. She earned a bachelor’s degree in animal science from NDSU in 2010 and a master’s degree in animal science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012.

She received the award Wednesday at the joint NDSU Extension and Research Extension Center conference in Bismarck.
