2011 Farm Mom of the Year

Monsanto’s search for the next America’s Farmers Mom of the Year is winding down, but there’s still time to nominate your favorite farm mom for the national title and up to $10,000 in prize money. Nominations will be accepted through April 23 at www.AmericasFarmers.com.

April Hemmes, America’s Farmers Mom of the Year 2011 for the Midwest Region, feels the contest is a great opportunity to recognize women in the male-dominated farming industry. “I think this effort really brings awareness to farm women, who are often under-recognized,” she says. “This contest is a great way to tell her you love her and she’s doing a great job.’”

In this video interview with Farm Industry News Editor Karen McMahon, Hemmes explains the contest and how’s she’s been involved since winning.
