We use our blog here at Moreno Ranches to inform the community about what’s going on, in and around Moreno Ranches and of course the Brahman Cattle industry. So when this news came across the desk, we were justifiably proud. Here’s an excerpt –
Kelvin Moreno of Dade County Farm Bureau was named the winner of Florida Farm Bureau’s Excellence in Agriculture competition. This competition is open to farmers and ranchers between the ages of 18 and 35 who do not derive the majority of their income from an owned farm operation.
The winner was announced during the President’s Awards Banquet at Florida Farm Bureau’s 2014 Annual Meeting in Ponte Vedra Beach on Oct. 29. Finalists in the competition also included Tamara Wood of Pasco County and Kevin Wright of Suwannee County.
Contestants were judged on the basis of their involvement in agriculture, leadership ability, participation in Farm Bureau and community service. In addition to other prizes, Moreno received an expense-paid trip to the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in San Diego Jan. 11-14, where he will compete in the national awards program.
