Ryan and Misty Bivens of LaRue County won the prestigious Achievement Award for young farmers during AFBF's 94th Annual Meeting last month in Nashville. As winners of the highly competitive contest for young farmers throughout the nation, Ryan and Misty get their choice of a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra. They also receive paid registration to the upcoming AFBF Young Farmer and Rancher Conference in Phoenix.

The Achievement Award recognizes those who have excelled in their farming operation plus have displayed leadership abilities. Participants are evaluated on a combination of their agricultural operation's growth and financial progress, Farm Bureau leadership and leadership in other groups.
