An amazing book was recognized this year as the AFBF Foundation for Agriculture 2013 Book of the Year, The Guardian Team…On the job with Rena and Roo, by Cat Urbigkit. It shares the story of two unlikely friends coming to the ranch together as “runts” and growing a relationship of trust as they work together to protect their sheep on a Wyoming ranch.
The American Foundation for Agriculture focuses on building awareness, understanding and a positive perception of Agriculture through the sharing of accurate information. The materials and programs are designed to not only be reliable but meet today’s educational standards and be utilized in schools across the country.
