Nancy hails from Wisconsin where she is a corn and soybean farmer, also serves as a director of the United Soybean Board, and has been communications director for the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association.

Roberts introduced the new Faces of Farming and Ranching at the NAFB convention, and he talked with our intern Taylor Truckey about that successful program as well as what he has seen USFRA accomplish in the last four years and what he is looking forward to in the future.
