Top Ten Finalists for 2013 Excellence in Agriculture Award

In agriculture, it takes all of us working together to provide a superior product for our customers, the American consumers who buy the food and fiber that we grow. From the families who raise crops on their land, to the veterinarians who provide care to livestock, to the ag educators who teach young students the importance of growing food in their area.

Every contributor to the process is vital to ensuring American agriculture remains a strong part of our country’s rich story.

The AFBF Excellence in Agriculture Award honors men and women who make significant contributions to agriculture, but who do not receive their primary incomes from farming and ranching. Participants also demonstrate outstanding leadership and involvement in Farm Bureau and other organizations.

These contestants from across the country understand that we must work together to give farmers and ranchers every opportunity to succeed. Without them, we could not move ahead.

The following Farm Bureau members have been named the top ten finalists for the 2013 Excellence in Agriculture Award:

Emily Eubanks, Florida
Drs. John & Marybeth Feutz, Indiana
Jarrod & Sarah Bowser, Kansas
William & Julie White, Mississippi
Kari Hanson, Montana
Alexandra Wright, New York
Steve & Mindi Clark, Oklahoma
David & Meghan Corvin, Tennessee
Kelby & Kathie Iverson, Utah
Dana Allen Fisher, Virginia
