Virginia Cattle Rancher Is National "Farm Mom Of The Year"

  Monsanto has selected its 2013 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year.

The online votes have been tallied, and Betty Rosson, a Virginia grain and cattle farmer, is Monsanto’s 2013 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year.

Betty’s nomination, submitted by son Charles, was chosen by judges of American Agri-Women as regional winner for the Southeast.

Online voting was conducted in early May, during which time anyone could visit AmericasFarmers.com, read regional winners’ nominations, and cast a vote for one to receive the national title.

Betty received the most online votes, and she was notified of her national win on Mother’s Day.

“Whether she is driving a tractor, feeding cows or caring for her family, Elizabeth (Betty) is 100% all-in for the job,” wrote Charles in the winning nomination. “Mom certainly doesn’t let grass grow under her feet, as she is always on the move for her family, her church, her farm and the community.”
