The American Farm Bureau Foundation has awarded its sixth annual “Book of the Year” award to Cat Urbigkit for her book “The Guardian Team: On the Job with Rena and Roo.” Cat is being interviewed in the photo by farm broadcaster Bob Middendorf.
Cat is a western Wyoming sheep rancher who raises livestock protection dogs and burros. Her award winning book is aimed at 3rd and 4th graders and is a photo essay of a mix of animals she raised together while shooting photos of them as they grew up. It’s a true story about agriculture that is meant to educate youngsters. She says it’s more important that ever to create good educational materials for children today.
