A “Farm Girl” at heart, Monica Krings has enjoyed being involved in Farm Bureau. From Ag in the Classroom to beef promotions and from attending district and state women’s events to volunteering at the milk stand at the Pierce County Fair, Monica volunteers her time as the Pierce County Farm Bureau Women’s Chair.
After retiring as a secretary in the Plum City School District, a role she held for 33 years, Monica spends her “free” time as the clerk for the Town of Union. She is also involved in her church and is a ticket-taker for ball games at school. She and her husband John have been married for 46 years and have three children and three grandchildren.
When asked what makes her excited about the future of women in agriculture, she states, “Since I have been involved in farming all my life and love being in the tractor or helping out, I feel women are a valuable asset to farming. I see where many large operations employ women. The reason for this is because they have patience, understanding and are willing to work hard. Also, behind a successful man is a good woman.”
