Boise--John and Caroline Anderson of Jerome say they're thrilled to win the YF&R Achievement Award. The award singles out farm couples between the ages of 18 and 35 that demonstrate outstanding farming and leadership achievements.
A panel of judges evaluated the contestants’ farm operations on the basis of growth and financial progress and leadership displayed with Farm Bureau and other organizations.
The Anderson operate one of the largest dairy farms in the west. The Andersons clearly demonstrated accomplishment and excellence in their dairy operation, not to mention strong leadership abilities that singled them out.
"The purpose of the YF and R Achiever program is to provide young farm members with additional opportunities for becoming active members of the Farm Bureau family," said YF and R Director Kendell Keller. "The YF and R program can be successful only if given the strong and active support of county leaders and we have that in Idaho Farm Bureau. "
