GROWMARK/FS Celebrates Wisconsin Master Farmers

“Master Farmers embody the qualities and competencies of this noble profession”

Bloomington, Ill. (August 26, 2021) – GROWMARK celebrates the work of the four Wisconsin producers named Master Farmers by Wisconsin Agriculturist. This year’s Wisconsin Master Farmers are:

 

Brian Brown of Belleville, WI

Brian Forrest of Stratford, WI

Jack Herricks of Cashton, WI

John Judd of Mount Horeb, WI

 

GROWMARK and FS are sponsors of the Master Farmer awards in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and the Northeast Atlantic States.

Since 2009, GROWMARK has sponsored the award that dates back to 1926, right around the time cooperatives started organizing in Wisconsin and across the Midwest.

“Wisconsin Agriculturist is grateful to GROWMARK for its continued financial support of the Master Farmer awards,” said Fran O’Leary, editor of Wisconsin Agriculturist. “Since 2009, GROWMARK has provided the financial assistance necessary to continue the program.”

GROWMARK’s commitment to caring for the local ag community dovetails with Wisconsin Agriculturist’s mission to maintain the heritage and honor of the Master Farmer awards.

“It’s an honor to sponsor this prestigious award,” said Jim Spradlin, GROWMARK CEO. “Individuals recognized as Master Farmers embody the qualities and competencies of this noble profession we are so proud to serve.”
