Time to nominate Michigan Master Farmers

The deadline to nominate farmers in Michigan for a master farmer award is this weekend.

Jody Pollok Newsom, head of the Michigan Wheat Program, tells Brownfield, “A master farmer is like the best of the best-those few farmers that we have in our state that just do everything exceptional and no matter what comes they know how to roll with it and make the best of the situation.”

Applications and nomination letters will be judged on farm management, innovation, conservation, leadership, and community involvement.

Awards will be presented at the end of January at the Great Lakes Crop Summit in Mt. Pleasant.

The winners will be featured in videos produced by Brownfield Ag News as well as in the Michigan Farmer online magazine and American Agriculturalist.
