2018 Master Agriculturist in the Town of Montrose

From an article in the March 2018 Wisconsin Agriculturist

Tom Sarbacker was nominated and won 2018 Master Agriculturist.  A Master Agriculturist program is one of the longest running career-achievement honors programs in American agriculture, dating back 88 years to 1930 when the Wisconsin Agriculturist started honoring top farmers for their hard work, dedication, success in farming and exemplary leadership.  The winners were selected for their proven ability and accomplishments as progressive farmers, and also for the time, effort and leadership they contribute to community, church and agricultural organizations.
