Awards presented at State NFO Convention

During the NFO state convention several awards were presented to members who have contributed significantly to the organization and to agriculture.

Brad Rach, NFO dairy director, was honored for his continued dedication. While Brach lives in Minnesota, he works extensively with dairy producers through the NFO’s dairy marketing program to assist them with their marketing efforts.

Richland County dairy producer Pete Dillenburg was recognized for his dedication to helping build the organization through collective bargaining efforts.

In his emotional acceptance speech, he said he and his late wife were simply doing what they believed in, striving to keep collective bargaining a part of the farming business.

Ashley Peterson, who helps promote agriculture through the social media and blog known as 2FarmGirlz, was recognized for her dedication to agriculture. The social media outlet has created quite a stir as this young farm woman tells the story of today’s agriculture in a friendly way.

Members approved resolutions including one regarding support of sensible rules regarding proposed changes by the Department of Transportation in implements of husbandry regulations.

The organization also reiterated its goal of pricing farm products by marketing through their own collective bargaining system, noting that  while the NFO supports a Farm Bill that includes emergency relief for farms, this is only a temporary relief and not the solution to commodity pricing issues.

The organization also supports efforts to preserve farmland through comprehensive land use plans, effective zoning ordinances, Purchase of Development Rights programs and Transfer of Development programs.

Wisconsin National Farmers Organization will be hosting the national NFO convention in Wisconsin Dells in late January.
