Vote Now to Elect the Next Faces of Farming and Ranching

From Oct. 24 until Nov. 2, the public is invited to vote for their favorite farmers to represent the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) “Faces of Farming and Ranching.” Winners will promote the agriculture industry in multiple ways on behalf of USFRA, including media interviews, public appearances and advertising efforts.

The finalists include:

  • Iowa pig farmer Erin Brenneman
  • Illinois pig farmer Thomas Titus
  • Michigan dairy farmer Carla Wardin
  • Colorado cattle rancher Jessica Potter
  • New Mexico vegetable, beef and nut producer Jay Hill
  • Texas turkey farmer Darrell Glaser
  • Texas row crop farmer Brian Jones
  • Wisconsin dairy farmer Carrie Mess

Visit http://faces.pgtb.me/w2Sg4d to watch short videos about each of these farmers and vote on your favorites. A combination of public votes along with USFRA judges scores will determine the winners, who will be announced Nov. 12.

Winners will receive a $15,000 stipend to help cover costs from being away from their operations. They’ll also receive professional media training and full support from USFRA during their yearlong tenure.
