Ontario County ag leaders recognized

Outstanding agriculture leaders recently were honored at the Ontario County Agriculture Appreciation Banquet at Club 86.

The banquet celebrating agriculture in Ontario County during National Agriculture Week attracted 160 agriculture producers, educators, county officials, county supervisors, state Sen. Pam Helming and representatives of state legislators. During the evening, themed “Down Memory Lane,” the Jerome, Zimmerman, Kunes, and Lightfoote families shared memories of their loved ones and the history behind the establishment of each award.

The Rodney Lightfoote Agricultural Viability, Leadership, and Innovation Award serves as a memorial to Rodney Lightfoote (1920-2002), former Agriculture Program Leader of Cornell Cooperative Extension, one of the original founders of Ontario County Farm Bureau, farmer and friend of agriculture.
