Thank you to everyone who entered U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance® (USFRA®) search for the new Faces of Farming & Ranching. Stay tuned! Finalists will be announced by USFRA in early September, and each finalist will be profiled on FoodDialogues.com/Faces. The general public will be able to vote for their favorite in late October through early November.
A combination of public votes and USFRA judges’ scores will determine the winners, who will be announced on November 12 at a press conference during the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention (NAFB) in Kansas City.
The Faces of Farming & Ranching program is designed to help put a real face on agriculture. To do so, USFRA is selecting standout farmers and ranchers who are proud of what they do, eager to share their stories of continuous improvement and who are actively involved in sharing those stories in public and on social media.
Faces of Farming & Ranching will receive:
- a $15,000 stipend
- the opportunity to tell the real stories of today’s farmers and ranchers
