The U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance is searching for its third class of Faces of Farming and Ranching. The Faces of Farming and Ranching program is a nationwide search to help put real faces on agriculture. The current Faces of Farming and Ranching are Darrell Glaser (Texas), Jay Hill (New Mexico), Thomas Titus (Illinois) and Carla Wardin (Michigan). These winners participate in national media interviews, speaking engagements and panels, web chats, advertising and much more, telling their stories of today’s farmers and ranchers.
The finalist selection committee is looking for individuals who have social and traditional media experience, a diverse commodity and production practice, and broad knowledge on key agriculture topics. Eight finalists will be announced mid-August, with online voting beginning in October to select the four winners. Applications may be submitted online June 6 through July 10 at FoodDialogues.com/Faces/Apply.
