Young Farmers and Ranchers Take Top Honors
(Page 2 of 2)
The Excellence in Agriculture award recognizes young farmers and ranchers who do not derive the majority of their income from an agricultural operation, but who actively contribute and grow through their involvement in agriculture, their leadership ability, and participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations.
“We at STIHL feel that the sponsorship is a natural fit with our commitment to embracing new ideas and new technology while staying true to the traditions that have made us successful,” says Roger Phelps, promotional communications manager with STIHL Inc. and one of five judges for the Final 4 in the Discussion Meet competition. “We believe the recipients of the AFBF’s awards for the Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet, and the Excellence in Agriculture competitions exemplify those values.”
“These awards recognize the future leaders of the agriculture community,” says Townsend Kyser, chairman of the Young Farmer and Rancher Committee. “STIHL’s sponsorship means that this next generation of agriculture professionals has the support of a respected industry innovator behind them.”
Farm Bureau is an independent, non-governmental, voluntary organization governed by and representing farm and ranch families united for the purpose of analyzing their problems and formulating action to achieve educational improvement, economic opportunity and social advancement and, thereby, to promote the national well-being. Farm Bureau is local, county, state, national and international in its scope and influence and is non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-secret in character. Farm Bureau is the voice of agricultural producers at all levels. Visit the website for more information.
