The goal of the project is to recognize women in agriculture whose dedication to their family, farm, community, and industry is unmatched. The regional winners have now been announced with a female that represents the important and continually evolving role that women play in American farms, families, rural communities and the agriculture industry. People can vote now through May 10th at AmericasFarmers.com.
