The Farm City Celebration stories in this edition are excerpted from a compilation of information prepared and presented by Jackson County Extension Director Doug Mayo at the Nov. 15 Farm City Celebration.
Mayo used materials contributed by the farm families recognized at the event, and from cooperating agency personnel for the presentation. There are edits throughout due to space restrictions.
Today’s stories focus on Outstanding Farm Family, Cattleman of the Year, Conservationist of the Year, CARES recognized operations, AgVocators and the winner of the Ed Jowers scholarship.
See more from the celebration in the Nov. 26 edition.
The Farm City stories slated for presentation in the Nov. 26 edition will focus on Peanut, Cotton, Corn, Hay, Tree and Specialty Farmers of the Year.
