USAgNet - 08/31/2016

With enthusiastic farmers across the country, spanning beef, corn, cotton, dairy, pork, poultry and soybeans, excited to share the truth behind today's agriculture to consumers, U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance announces the finalists of its third class of Faces of Farming and Ranching, a nationwide search to help put real faces on agriculture.

The following farmers and ranchers were named finalists: Lauren Arbogast, Va.; Emily Buck, Ohio; Katie Roth, Wis.; Lauren Schwab, Ohio; Jeremy Brown, Texas; Paul Lanoue, Minn.; Geoff Ruth, Neb.; and Joy Widerman, Pa.

Applications were received from dedicated farmers and ranchers from across the nation. Winners will share their stories and experiences about how food is grown and raised in the U.S. on a national stage through media interviews, consumer-facing public appearances, blog posts and more.

Through October 10-16, people can visit USFRA's Facebook Page to learn more about each of the finalists and the work they do, including short videos highlighting their operation. From there, the public can vote for the farmers and ranchers whom they believe best represents the passion and innovation behind today's agriculture. These votes will be factored into the final decision to determine the next Faces of Farming and Ranching.

This is the third class of Faces of Farming & Ranching that USFRA has sought to speak on behalf of the industry in this capacity.
