2014 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year Announced



(NAFB)--Monsanto has announced the 2014 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year is Heather Dineen of Texas. Dineen was nominated by her husband - who combined his kids’ nominations into one essay. He said there have been lots of struggles establishing and maintaining their family farm - but Dineen always helps them keep going - whether she’s earning grocery money with a paper route, sewing old clothes into new ones or helping him fix equipment. He says the love farming - and no matter how hard things get - his wife always makes time to visit schools and share their ag story. Dineen manages the local Livestock 4-H club, chairs the commercial heifer committee and educates people about farming through farm tours, taking students to the state capital and designing a t-shirt line called Heart on My Sleeve. This line features agriculture facts to inspire conversations about where food comes from. Dineen has also started a Farm Safety 4Kids chapter - as her son was killed in a farming accident.
