AgVocate of the Year

Know a woman who is a true advocate for agriculture in Wisconsin? Nominate her for the 2018 AgVocate of the Year award. The 2018 AgVocate of the Year Award nomination application will be available November 2017.

Beginning in 2015, we were honored for the award to be sponsored by the Fabulous Farm Babe, Pam Jahnke.


The Fabulous Farm Babe, Pam Jahnke, and WI Farm Dude, Bryant Gill, are once again the generous sponsors of the AgVocate of the Year award. They will be awarding $500 to the AgVocate selected and donating $500 to the agriculture charity of her choice.
