Three new farmers are being added to a distinguished list of Master Farmers. They join a list of highly respected Michigan producers who have been presented this award since the program began in 2005.
Michigan Farmer and Brownfield Ag News are proud to honor Tom Braid of Durand, Ed Cagney of Scotts and Robert Ohse of Custer as 2018 Master Farmers.
Honorees are designated as 2018 winners because the award is based on a career in agriculture and, therefore, designated with the year it is presented.
The awardees were nominated by peers and chosen by a committee of agriculture industry leaders based on farm management, innovation, conservation and leadership. The 2018 Master Farmers will be honored at a luncheon during the Great Lakes Crop Summit Feb. 1 at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant. The sponsors are Corn Marketing of Michigan, Michigan Wheat Program and Michigan Soybean Promotion Committee. Master Farmers receive a plaque, Carhartt jacket courtesy of Carhartt and a $1,000 check, provided by Wilbur-Ellis, Greenstone Farm Credit Services and Michigan Agricultural Commodities.
