Primghar, Iowa, July 19, 2021 – The O’Brien County Value Added Agriculture (VAA) Steering Committee established their annual Agriculture Hall of Fame Award in 2001 to recognize those who make noteworthy contributions to the agricultural community. In 2016, a business category was added and in the following years, both an individual and a business were recognized with this award. 

Due to the Covid-19 virus, the Committee was unable to recognize the 2020 recipients last year. Therefore, the Value Added Ag Committee will be presenting both the 2020 and 2021 Ag Hall of Fame awards this year.
The Value Added Ag Committee invites the public to attend this short award ceremony, which will be held at the O’Brien County Fair on July 26th at 7:50 p.m., right before the crowning of the O’Brien County Fair King and Queen.

According to the Ag Steering Committee, the successful candidate for this award must have demonstrated leadership, stewardship, community service and service to the agricultural industry. They must also be an O’Brien County resident or someone who engages in agricultural activity in the county. The Ag Steering Committee is honored to recognize two individuals and two businesses who meet these criterions.

O’Brien County Agriculture Hall of Fame Nominations are accepted year round. For more information, contact Kiana Johnson, O’Brien County Economic Development at 712.957.1313 or e-mail ocedc@tcaexpress.net .
