Ag Hall of Fame accepting applications

Written by Saige


Casper –
As summer draws closer, the Wyoming Livestock Roundup is preparing to select the 2014 Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame inductees. We need your help to identify those Wyoming farmers, rancher, agri-business people and ag industry supporters who have contributed to the agriculture industry in our state.

            “The Wyoming Ag Hall of Fame award was first started in 1992 to recognize the leadership in the ag community,” says Wyoming Livestock Roundup Publisher Dennis Sun. “The need is there to recognize people who have been leaders, given themselves, their time and countless resources to help the ag community in the state”

            Last year’s inductees were Dick Loper of Lander and Jw and Thea Nuckolls of Sundance.
