A Shawano County woman has been selected as the 2016 Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmer and Agriculturist Discussion Meet contest winner. Kristi Fiedler was awarded at the WFBF Annual Meeting on December 4th.
Fielder was part of a panel discussion in which Farm Bureau members between the ages of 18 and 35 are judged on their ability to express their ideas and opinions, while reaching a solution on current agriculture issues.
Kristi is the associate vice president of U.S. Technical Services for Genex. She earned an animal science bachelor’s degree from UW-Platteville and a master’s degree from University of Phoenix in Management.
Kristi lives in Cecil, WI with her husband, Brian. She lives in Cecil with Brian and their two children, Allyson and Hudson.
Fiedler will get to do some traveling. She will compete in the national Discussion Meet contest at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 98th Annual Meeting next month in Phoenix, Arizona. She also qualifies for the YFA trip to Washington, D.C. in 2018. She will be a guest of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation at next year’s Young Farmer and Agriculturist Conference and a special guest at the annual meeting of GROWMARK, Inc. in Chicago in August.
