nafb-16-saraDuring the National Association of Farm Broadcasting (NAFB) Night of Honors, Sara Wyant, Agri-Pulse, was given the 2016 Dix Harper Meritorious Service Award.

As member of the NAFB Foundation Board of Directors, Sara has brought her leadership, knowledge of industry, and willingness to work. She has single-handedly added funds for additional scholarships, raised new money for the Foundation, and has been a supporter of the Doan Award to honor past colleague and friend, Stewart Doan. Thank you, Sara, for your dedication to the farm broadcasting industry.

Beyond her leadership in NAFB, Sara is a trusted voice when it comes to agriculture policy. Following a panel during the NAFB convention on agriculture’s reactions to the recent election, I sat down to pick Sara’s brain on how she thought the new administration would take on key agricultural issues.

Trade is very important to the agriculture community, Sara said she along with other small business owners and farmers who are already concerned about trade will quickly be looking to President-Elect Trump to bring some clarity to his statements on trade we have heard throughout the campaign trail.
