Nominations for Master Farm Families Due November 22
It’s mid-October and I hope your Extension Board has identified a farm family to nominate for the Statewide Master Farmer/Farm Homemaker recognition. Nominations will be due November 22, 2021 from your county or district. The instructions, input form, and submission process are entirely ON-LINE. Follow this link: https://tinyurl.com/Ksmff. Form and format are simple to follow and complete. And, you can save the work at any time and then retrieve it later to continue to complete!
The Kansas Master Farmer program was started some 94 years ago in 1926, and continues today. Over the years, more than 400 families have been recognized, honored, and become members of the Kansas Master Farmer Association and the Kansas Master Farm Homemakers Guild. While this is statewide recognition, it truly represents a way of expressing recognition locally for those farm families who have shown great support and excellence in community and success in their farm/ranch operations. No better way to demonstrate the value of extension, and in many cases, 4-H leadership locally.
Don’t miss the chance to nominate a deserving farm family from your community for statewide recognition. This K-State Research and Extension Program is co-sponsored with the Kansas Farmer magazine, and is provided excellent financial support by Kansas Farm Bureau, Frontier Farm Credit and American AgCredit.
