Coming to the Farm Progress Show today? Swing by the Hospitality Building at 1:30 p.m. to meet the newly announced 2021 Master Farmers and the 2020 Master Farmers, who were unable to be recognized last year due to the pandemic.
“After COVID-19 altered plans for the 2020 Master Farmer awards luncheon, we are eager to publicly recognize both the 2020 and 2021 Master Farmers,” says Prairie Farmer editor Holly Spangler “It’s been a long couple years in the ag community, and we’re all looking to reconnect with each other and award some exceptional farmers.”
