Marion County farmer gets Monsanto award

Staff writer

DeAlan Unrau of rural Goessel recently won a $2,500 cash prize from America’s Farmers Grow Communities. He designated Goessel’s Future Farmers of America chapter to receive the Monsanto sponsored award.

Members of the Goessel FFA, DeAlan and Alma Unrau, and a Monsanto representative will participate in a check presentation ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on March 30, at the Goessel High School, 100 E. Main Street, Goessel.

America’s Farmers Grow Communities is part of a broad commitment by the Monsanto Fund to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day to society. Nearly 60,000 farmers like Unrau participated in the second annual program designed to benefit nonprofit groups such as agricultural youth, schools, and other civic organizations.
