Nominate now for Farmer of the Year
Nominations for the award are being accepted now through Dec. 19.
Forms can be obtained at any LSU AgCenter extension office or at www.lsuagcenter.com/farmeroftheyear. Producers from all areas of agriculture are eligible to enter.
"Even in the tough times such as this year’s drought, our farmers were able to produce an abundance of food and fiber," says LSU AgCenter Chancellor Bill Richardson. "Louisiana farmers are a resilient group and continue to be an essential economic engine for the state."
Three finalists will be recognized at White Oak Plantation in Baton Rouge on Feb. 23, 2012.
This is the 15th year of presenting the Louisiana Farmer of the Year award.
Last year’s winner was Charles Gravois, a sugarcane farmer from Vacherie in St. James Parish.
