Winterhofs named Iowa Master Farmer

Four Iowa farm families from across the state were named “Iowa Master Farmers” by Wallaces Farmer magazine and the Iowa Master Farmer Association on March 28 in Ankeny.

This year’s winners include Dan and Lynn Winterhof of Aurelia, Larry and Bunny Buss of Logan, Nicholas and Sue Hunt of Atlantic and Joseph Rash of Union. They join more than 460 Iowa farm families recognized since 1926.

In addition, retired Iowa State University Extension beef specialist Joe Sellers received an Exceptional Service award for his long-time work with farmers. Sellers retired in 2018 after 31 years at Iowa State. Sellers’ Extension efforts established him as a national leader in grazing and forage management education.
