Wisconsin OYF Competition to be Held This Weekend
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/18/2021

Five farm couples will compete this week to become the winners of the 2021 Outstanding Young Farmer Award. Organizers say a special awards weekend is being planned for January 22-24 at the Best Western Premier Bridgewood Resort in Neenah, where the candidates will be interviewed, tested and evaluated by a panel of judges.

None of the events will be open to the public due to the pandemic, but the candidates will have the ability to network with one another as they take in an Ag Forum/Workshop and participate in tours of local businesses.

This year's nominees include Joseph & Ashley Dudkiewicz, Crivitz; Clint & Erin Hodorff, Eden; Michael & Jenny Jenson, Elk Mound; Shane & Jennifer Sauer, Waterloo; and Leslie & Scott Svacina, Deer Park.

Winners are selected based on progress in their agricultural career, soil and water conservation and contributions to community, state and nation. In addition to the coveted title, each of the couples will also be competing for the 'Speak up for Agriculture' award.

The Wisconsin OYF program was developed in 1954 to recognize the younger generation of successful agriculturists in the state. Farmers younger than 40 years of age who derive at least two-thirds of their income from farming are eligible to apply for the annual award.
