Each regional winner was awarded a $5,000 cash prize from Monsanto.

A profile of each, along with her winning nomination, will remain posted on until May 12, the voting deadline. The national winner will be announced on Sunday, May 13 – Mother’s Day.

The American Agri-Women, a national coalition of women’s farm, ranch and agribusiness organizations, evaluated nominations on how each farm mom nominee supports to her farm, family, community and the agricultural industry.

“Despite the great geographic distance that separates our 2012 regional winners, they share a common passion for their families and the land, crops and animals they care for,” says Consuelo Madere, America’s Farmers Mom of the Year spokesperson. “Each is known in her community for putting a smiling face on agriculture and illustrating that the food on our grocery store shelves is grown by hard-working American farm families.”

The five 2012 America’s Farmers Mom of the Year regional winners collectively produce a variety of crops and livestock, including corn, soybeans, cotton, peanuts, wheat, pumpkins, hay, sunflowers, wheat, alfalfa, flax and beef cows. They are active in agricultural organizations including FFA; 4-H; Farm Bureau; state soybean, small grains, livestock and Angus associations; state grain producer’s board; national peanut board; National Cattlemen’s Beef Association; Cattlemen’s Beef Board; and many more outstanding agricultural groups.

Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Mom of the Year is an extension of the America’s Farmers program, which celebrates the contributions of America’s farmers, who provide food, energy and clothing for a growing planet.
