Wisconsin Outstanding Young Farmer Banquet is This Weekend
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/18/2022

Six farm couples will compete this weekend to become the winners of the 2022 Outstanding Young Farmer Award. Organizers say a special awards weekend is being planned for January 21-23 at the Best Western Premier Bridgewood Resort in Neenah, where the candidates will be interviewed, tested and evaluated by a panel of judges.

The public is invited to an awards banquet on Saturday night, starting with a social hour at 6:00 p.m. Past OYF participants will also have a reception the same evening to celebrate the 69th year of OYF in Wisconsin. And a 'Speak up for Agriculture' award winner will be named.

This year's nominees include Keith & Stephanie Abts, New Franken; Bryanna & Dylan Handel, Barneveld; Matt & Sara Hintz, Amherst; Ryan & Megan Prellwitz, Ripon; Mike & Gina Redetzke, Colby; and Kyle & Rachel Zwieg, Ixonia.

Winners are selected based on progress in their agricultural career, soil and water conservation and contributions to community, state and nation. As part of the recognition, the top couple will also be nominated to attend the February 2023 national OYF Awards Congress, which will be held in Appleton that year.
