Burr Oak Young Farmer takes second place at convention

Michigan Farm Bureau’s 2021 “Young Farmer Excellence in Agriculture” award winner, Loren King of Burr Oak, brought his insight and expertise in farm advocacy and technology to the national stage Saturday, taking home second place at AFBF’s annual convention in Atlanta.

The Excellence in Agriculture Award is designed to recognize young farmers for their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability and participation in Farm Bureau.

King will take home a new Case IH Farmall 50A tractor as a prize for his accomplishment. He said he plans to put it to good use someday, when he and his fiancé look to find an older farmhouse property they can restore.
