Reporter among best in national ag journalism


SALEM, Ohio – Farm and Dairy reporter Kristy Hebert received honors in the 2005 North American Agricultural Journalists’ writing contest.
Hebert’s story, A match made in Mexico, explored the federal H-2A immigrant labor regulations. She finished third in the news category.
” Farm and Dairy works hard to provide its readers with usable news and information,” said Editor Susan Crowell, “but we also work hard to provide our readers with quality writing and reporting.
“Kristy’s award proves what I’ve known for years: Our work is among the best in the country.”
Other winners in the news category were from the Wichita Eagle’s Washington Bureau and the Des Moines Register.
Hebert, who holds a degree in journalism from the University of Tennessee, joined Farm and Dairy in 2002.
North American Agricultural Journalists is a professional association of agricultural editors and writers across the United States and Canada.
