Staff Profile

Dana Baker

Tehama County FARMS Leadership Program Coordinator

Dana Baker grew up in the small town of Hemet, California located in Riverside County. Here her natural love for agriculture blossomed at age 5 as a mini member in 4-H. She grew through 4-H holding many offices on the Leadership Board as well as showing several species of livestock and raising LaMancha dairy goats. During high school she took an active role in FFA where she was on judging teams as well as raised and showed turkeys, sheep, dairy heifers, and market steers. Dana attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where she received her Bachelors of Science degree in Dairy Science and a minor in Equine Science all while being a part of the rodeo team, quarter horse enterprise, and equine breeding enterprise.

She now lives in Red Bluff, California with her husband and 2 children. Here she raises a small registered herd of boer goats, Hereford cattle, as well as grows walnuts. For the past few years she has been a stay at home mom who is very involved in her kids schools as well as substitute teaching in the county. Her love and passion for agriculture paired with her experience with kids made the position as the Tehama County FARMS Leadership Coordinator a natural fit. She is very excited to get this program off and running as well as building new relationships with the teachers, students and industry partners!
