Recognizing the hard work of agriculture is part of the culture. There are several programs, many sponsored by Farm Progress, aiming to shine a spotlight on those farm leaders that are driving this industry forward. In this episode of Around Farm Progress, Brad Haire, Southeast Farm Press, and head of the Farm Press team at Farm Progress, discussed two programs his group manages.

Recently, Haire was part of the program recognizing the 2023 High Cotton Award winners at the MidSouth Farm and Gin Show. He discusses that award, and highlights this year’s winners and their operations. This award recognizes farmers across the entire cotton belt from Virginia to California. And Brad previews the upcoming Peanut Efficiency Award and how that program works. Farm Press is starting to get nominations for that award now, and the program recognizing winners is set for San Destin, Fla., in July. Listen in to learn more about these programs and what they mean for agriculture.
