Boise--Idaho Farm Bureau President Frank Priestley awarded Don and Judi Hale of Blackfoot the IFBF President’s Cup for their contribution to agriculture over the past three decades. Don Hale passed away last spring. He emerged as a water rights advocate in the 80’s, serving as a water master and eventually serving on the Committee of 9. Judi Hale has a lifetime of involvement in every aspect of Farm Bureau. Judi owns and operates the family farm in Blackfoot.
“I think Farm Bureau gave us the chance to make a name for ourselves, and it gave me a chance to find out who I really was and learn things for myself and be a leader; If Don were around he would be proud,” said Judi Hale.
