The AgEnergy Committee of the Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce recently presented the Ag Woman of the Year Award for Becky Reich. The presentation was made at the chamber's Farmer Appreciation Festival.

Reich received the award for her work and leadership among the regional farming community. Her nomination letter read in part, “Becky is a hard-working motivated woman looking to enhance their operation further. She took over the farm after her husband, Alvin, passed back in 2015. She has converted it from a dairy operation to a 275 head beef operation. "

The nomination letter noted that switching to a beef operation involved replacing fencing and installing cross fencing, pipelines and water tanks in the pastures. Windbreak/shelterbelts were established, cover crops have been planted and a grazing system has been installed.

"These practices will not only enhance the ground but make her a better steward in managing the land," the letter said.
