Neal and Lydia Wolheter of LaGrange County received the INFB Young Farmer Achievement Award.
This award recognizes young farmers who earn a majority of their income from the farm.
They farm corn, soybeans, wheat, and rye grass.
The INFB Excellence in Agriculture award winner receives a John Deere Gator and $3,000. The Achievement Award winner receives $6,000 and 250 hours’ free use of one M-Series Kubota tractor.
Both will also receive an all-expense paid trip to compete at the American Farm Bureau convention in January in New Orleans.
