Wisconsin Ag Women's Summit names Agvocates of the Year

March 23, 2014 | 0 comments

More than 300 women were in attendance to celebrate their role in agriculture at the Wisconsin Ag Women's Summit, hosted by Badgerland Financial, Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and University of Wisconsin-Extension on March 14 and 15 in Madison. Laura Daniels, Cobb, and Karyn Schauf, Barron, were specially recognized as true promoters of agriculture, being named the 2014 Wisconsin AgVocates of the Year during the Friday evening banquet.

"We all have that moment where we see something come across our desk or we read it in the newspaper, something that doesn't represent the truth and diversity of agriculture," Daniels said. "We know that someone needs to speak up on behalf of farmers, and it's that moment that we come to realize that it's our time." She and her husband, Jarred, and children, Nathan and Julia, care for their 300 Jersey cows and 650 acres of crop and pasture land at Heartwood Farm.

"The real key to successful advocating is that, whatever style fits you best, just do it well," Schauf shared with attendees. Karyn and her husband, Bob, own and farm Indianhead Holsteins where they milk 100 registered Holstein cows and market cattle genetics worldwide.

Since 2013, the Wisconsin Ag Women's Summit has recognized an AgVocate of the Year. This award is given to a woman who actively and positively represents agriculture to both her peers and those outside of the agriculture community. She works to tell agriculture's story in a professional manner and is seen as a leader and voice for local and state issues and events.

In their honor, a $250 donation will be made to the charities of Laura and Karyn's choice.

The Summit's planning committee invites women to save the date for the 2015 Wisconsin Ag Women's Summit, to be held March 13-14 at the Madison Marriot West in Middleton.
