Mary Wheeler received the Women in Ag Lady in Agriculture Award presented at the 13th Annual Women In Ag Conference held at the Stoney Creek Inn in Columbia, MO. Mary and her husband Monty, own and manage a registered and commerical Black
Angus herd in Polk and Greene Counties in Missouri. Mary was nominated by the Polk County Soil and Water Conservation District. Nominees for the award were evaluated on three criteria: day to day involvement in the operation, organizations and involvement in agriculture, and community and/or volunteer work for agriculture.

Next year’s Women in Ag Conference will be held in Southeast Missouri; all are invited to nominate fellow landowners or agriculture professionals for this award and attend the conference.
