It's that time again when farmers, agribusiness professionals and others involved in the agricultural industry have the opportunity to nominate the "best of the best" for the Master Farmer awards, presented in January.
For the 10th year Michigan Farmer magazine, Michigan Agri-Business Association and Michigan Farm Radio Network will present the Michigan Master Farmer awards to three outstanding producers. Winners are chosen by a committee of agriculture industry leaders based on farm management, innovation, conservation, leadership and community involvement.
The award is named the same year that it's given because it acknowledges a lifetime of achievement and not a single year.
Master Farmers receive a plaque and pin from Michigan Farmer and a Carhartt jacket, donated by Carhartt. They also receive a $1,000 check, made possible by sponsors Michigan Agricultural Commodities, Greenstone Farm Credit Services and Mosaic.
All three farmers are featured in the January issue of Michigan Farmer magazine.
Please nominate a Master Farmer by visiting www.MichiganFarmer.com for an application. Don't delay, the deadline is Oct. 15.
