South Dakotan named Monsanto's America's Farmers Mom of the Year
LEMMON, S.D. (AP) - A Keldron woman has been named Monsanto's America's Farmers Mom of the Year for the Northwest.
Danni Beer is one of five regional winners from across the county selected by American Agri-Women and Monsanto. She was selected based on an essay submitted on her behalf by her daughter, Bailie.
Beer will receive a $5,000 check Saturday at the Lemmon Boss Cowman Rodeo. Monsanto says the award recognizes her contributions to family, farm and community and the leadership role she's taken to promote agriculture.
