Nominate a 2017 Master Agriculturist now

Deadline for nominations is Dec. 5.

In 2017, Wisconsin Agriculturist will again honor Wisconsin farmers who have demonstrated outstanding farm management skills while also taking active leadership roles in their communities. The Master Agriculturist awards honor not only the selected individuals, but also their families.

The 2016 Master Agriculturists are Dick Cates of Spring Green, Mark Dietsche of Bloomer, Ken Feltz of Stevens Point and Hank Wagner of Oconto Falls.

MASTER AWARD: Nominate a Wisconsin farmer you admire for the 2017 Master Agriculturist award.

The Master Agriculturist program has a rich history dating back 86 years to 1930, when the magazine first started honoring top Wisconsin farmers. Wisconsin Agriculturist is looking for the cream of the crop. This is a wonderful opportunity to recognize farmers who have excelled and can serve as an inspiration to others.

Nomination forms are available online. To have a nomination form mailed to you, call the Wisconsin Agriculturist editorial office at 920-346-2285, or email fran.oleary@penton.com.

Nominations must be postmarked by Dec. 5. Letters of recommendation help strengthen the nomination and should be included. Agronomists, county Extension agriculture agents, nutritionists, veterinarians, neighbors and clergy members are good sources to request to write a letter of recommendation.

Farmers previously nominated who haven’t been named Master Agriculturists need a letter sent requesting their nomination be considered for 2017.

Winners will be selected by a committee of industry leaders and honored at a luncheon on March 29 at La Sure’s Banquet Hall in Oshkosh during the Wisconsin Public Service Farm Show, which is March 28-30. Winners also will be featured in the March issue of Wisconsin Agriculturist. Past winners will be invited to attend the Master Agriculturist awards program and luncheon.

Take a few minutes and nominate somebody you believe should receive the award. Nomination forms and letters of recommendation should be returned to Wisconsin Agriculturist, P.O. Box 236, Brandon, WI 53919.
