The Top Producer of the Year Award identifies and honors agricultural producers from whom our readers can learn business concepts, ranging from value-added ventures to succession plans to overcoming adversity.
If these characteristics can be used to describe you, then you should apply to be the 2012 Top Producer of the Year.
Entrants will be judged on:
- entrepreneurial originality (50%)
- financial and business progress (30%)
- industry or community leadership (20%)
Any farmer or rancher who derives at least half of his/her income from farming and farm-related ventures may apply.
