Grain & Feed Marketing is a national industry magazine serving over 12,000 managers at 11,882 business locations across the United States. The 30 year old magazine is published quarterly, and is one of a number of successful trade magazines Roberts has published. Roberts has done business in Freeport since 1979.


Luedtke came aboard in 2005 and reworked the look of the publication. “Much effort has gone into creating an informative and attractive, easy to read format that is reader-friendly,” Roberts said. “The readers are busy and need to be able to quickly determine what is of most interest or most helpful to them”


Clukey’s work has appeared in the Freeport Journal-Standard and his commentaries and news articles regularly appear in the Freeport Ink. He also owns a commercial writing business, Accurate Impressions, which provides copywriting services for businesses and nonprofit organizations. A native of Maine, Clukey has been a Freeport resident for 10 years and is a graduate of Highland Community College.


“I’m enthusiastic about Freeport and the chance to manage a fine publication,” Clukey said. “I have great material to work with because a core group of industry experts contribute to the magazine regularly. Our role is stated right on the cover: ‘Helping Managers Manage.’”


Clukey’s tenure begins with the Summer 2006 issue, which will be published in June.
