2013 Country Woman of the Year
The 20th annual Farm & Ranch Guide Country Woman of the Year luncheon program, which will be held on Friday, July 12, at the The Seven Seas Hotel & Waterpark in Mandan, N.D., will feature seven finalists.
The seven finalists include Vawnita Best, Watford City, N.D.; Susan Olsen, Bowman, N.D.; Joy Enger, Marion, N.D.; Tera Meyer, Morristown, S.D.; Kim Barnhardt, Mandan, N.D.; Wendy Solemsaas, Sherwood, N.D.; and Marlene Grabow, Stanley, N.D.
WATFORD CITY, N.D. – Country women not only raise their families to have a deep love for the land and an appreciation for family, but some also answer the call to be the voice for agriculture and ag producers.
ST. ANTHONY, N.D. – Just how does Kim Barnhardt do it all? And while wearing that cape.
MARION, N.D. – Joy Enger, a dedicated farm wife and community supporter from the Marion area in southeast North Dakota is one of the Country Woman of the Year finalists.
MORRISTOWN, S.D. – When Tera Meyer graduated from Carrington (N.D.) High School, her future plans didn’t necessarily say, “marry a great guy and become a ranch co-owner/operator,” but that’s where her path led.
STANLEY, N.D. – Like many country women, Marlene Grabow is humble about the importance of her role in her family’s farm and ranch operation.
SHERWOOD, N.D. – As Wendy Solemsaas was heading off to college, she was certain agriculture was no longer in her future, but times change and she is now one of the finalists for Farm & Ranch Guide’s Country Woman of the Year honor.
BOWMAN, N.D. - In high school, like any other senior, Susan Olsen recorded her future plans in her yearbook. More than anything else, Susan wrote she wanted to marry a farmer.
The 20th annual Farm & Ranch Guide Country Woman of the Year luncheon program, which will be held on Friday, July 12, at the The Seven Seas Hotel & Waterpark in Mandan, N.D., promises to be a very special event.
Doreen Rosevold was the featured speaker at the very first Country Woman of the Year program back in 1994 and she will be again for the 20th annual event which will take place beginning at noon on Friday, July 12, at the Seven Seas Hotel & Waterpark in Mandan, N.D.
Misty Steeke, middle, was congratulated after being named Farm & Ranch Guide’s Country Woman of the Year 2012. This year’s Country Woman will be named July 12 at the Seven Seas in Mandan, N.D.
