The American Agri-Women (AAW) recently honored Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa with its Champion of Agriculture Award during the annual AAW Fly-In in Washington D.C.

“We are honored to recognize a true Champion of Agriculture in Senator Joni Ernst. Her concern and dedication to agriculture and rural America is evident in both her words and actions,” said AAW President Doris Mold.

“Championing Iowa’s farmers is a priority of mine,” said Senator Ernst. “I am grateful for this honor as we work to assist the men and women who help feed and fuel our nation and world.”

American Agri-Women member and fellow Iowan Natalina Sents had the honor of presenting the award to Sen. Ernst. Natalina is a recent Iowa State University graduate who spent six months on the road last year visiting all 50 states to share the “Why I Farm” stories of 150 farmers – sponsored by Beck’s Hybrids.
