Johanna Rohrer, Division Marketing Specialist for MidAtlantic Farm Credit, was awarded as the winner of PFB’s Young Ag Professionals “Excellence in Agriculture” Award on November 19, 2019 at the organization’s 69th annual meeting in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
According to PFB, the award considers candidates who do not have the majority of their income subject to normal production risk. They recognize Rohrer’s “leadership ability, involvement with agriculture, and participation with Farm Bureau.” She is currently a member of PFB’s Young Ag Professional Committee, as well as the volunteer Newsletter and Website Editor for Lancaster County Farm Bureau.
“I enjoy having the opportunity to tell agriculture’s story as a marketing specialist and to support the Farm Credit mission to enhance our local community,” says Rohrer.
In her role with MidAtlantic Farm Credit as a Division Marketing Specialist, Rohrer works directly with the sales staff, coordinating outreach with our members and developing content. In addition to her volunteer involvement with PFB, she serves as a coach for the local 4-H program and works weekends on her family’s farm, which produces corn, soybeans, wheat, and tree fruit, sold directly to local consumers from the family’s farm market.
“We are very proud of Johanna for receiving this award and look forward to having her represent our organization and region at the national level,” says Jenny Kreisher, Director of Communications and Creative Services at MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “She is an excellent leader and a true example of how Farm Credit’s employees are rooted in agriculture.”
As the winner, Rohrer receives several prizes, including free lodging and registration for the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 101st Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. For more information about the PFB Young Ag Professionals Awards, visit pfb.com/get-involved/young-ag-professionals.
