Mr. and Mrs. Ronald Adam and Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Norton were recipients of the 1969 County Farm Management Awards. They were selected from several applicants by a local committee in late summer.
Presenting the awards was Mr. Albert Pease, manager Agribusiness Department, Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, who act as sponsor of this program for western Missouri.
The Adam and Norton families were chosen for their achievements and progress both on and off the farm. They would be the first to remind us that they haven’t reached some “utopia” in farming, but they have made achievements in agriculture through planning, record keeping and soil erosion control.
The awards were presented at the 45th annual Soils and Crops Conference.
