Terry Tucker Honored with Agrivision Award
Maple Leaf Farms CEO Terry Tucker was recently honored with Indiana's highest agricultural award, the AgriVision Award, during a ceremony at the 2019 Indiana State Fair. Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch and Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler made the presentation as part of ISDA's day-long celebration of agriculture at the state fair.
“These families represent the very best of Indiana agriculture,” Crouch said. “They’ve dedicated their lives to improving the industry and the lives of those around them. Recognizing their legacy today is a small token of our gratitude for a lifetime of service.”
This marks the 13th year that ISDA has presented the award to individuals who have made significant contributions to the state's agricultural industry and rural communities. Dr. Stan Poe, a sheep breeder from Franklin, Indiana, was also honored with the award during the presentation.
“Stan, Terry, their families, are pillars in the agricultural community and world, for that matter,” said Kettler. “They’ve revolutionized and shaped entire sectors of the industry. Agriculture would not be where it is today without their contribution.”
