U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) announces today public voting for its third class of Faces of Farming and Ranching, a nationwide search to help put real faces on agriculture.

From October 14-23, people can visit USFRA’s Facebook Page, to learn more about each of the finalists and the work they do, including short videos highlighting their farm or ranch. From there, the public can vote for the farmers and ranchers whom they believe best represent the passion and innovation behind today’s agriculture.

These votes will be factored into the final decision to determine the next Faces of Farming and Ranching, which will be announced on November 9 at a NAFB press conference in Kansas City, Mo.
Finalists are:
Lauren Arbogast, Va., Turkeys, broilers, cattle
