The ones to watch: Help us find the millennials who will be tomorrow’s leaders in agriculture


We’re recognizing the accomplishments of some of the farm community’s leading ladies in our “You Go, Girl” series. In doing so, we salute women everywhere who have built management or leadership roles within agriculture.

We’d also like to tip our hat to the next generation — those young women who we’ll be writing about in 15 years as farm leaders — but we need your help.

During our final week of the “You Go, Girl” series, we will be spotlighting eight young women, age 18-30, who are already blazing trails in agriculture.

If you know someone who should be on that list, send us a name, her contact information, and a brief description or reason why you think she should be included. The more you can tell us about this individual’s accomplishments, the better.

All names must be submitted by March 30 for possible consideration. Email us at, or write to the newsroom at P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460.
