2012 Purdue Women In Agriculture Award Winners
The goal of the Purdue Extension Women in Agriculture Leadership Award is to recognize a woman in an agribusiness or policymaking position who has made a difference in Indiana agriculture
The 2012 Leadership Award was presented to LuAnn Troxel (right),
owner of Troxel Dairy Farm in Laporte and Starke Counties
She and her husband Tom, also operate an animal veterinary business, South County Veterinary Service, of which LuAnn is office manager, and own the Heifer Hill neonatal heifer-raising facility, where they raise about 200 head of calves until 6 months of age.
The Purdue Extension Women in Agriculture Achievement Award recognizes women who are directly involved in a home farming operation.
The 2012 Achievement Award was presented to Tammi Unger (left). “For the love of the game: family – faith – farming” is the philosophy of Tammi. She has been a full partner and co-owner of Del Unger Farms in Carlisle - Sullivan County since 1984. Since then, the operation has grown from 1,200 acres to 4,500 acres. While Del Unger Farms is the grain operation, Unger Farms, formed in 1990, is the entity that encompasses the 75-head beef cattle operation.
