The 2018 recipient of the annual Conservation Farmer of the Year goes to William R. McNabney. William grew up on the family farm and took over at age 14. He’s been a trailblazer in conservation farming, starting minimum tillage in 1966. William and his wife, Linda have had their farm in Medaryville since 1974 utilizing no-till and adding in cover crops. William has kept up with technology to he can keep his farm as sustainable as possible and prevent an excess of nutrients from entering our water sources. We would like to thank William McNabney for his lifetime of dedication to conservation and name him the 2018 Conservation Farmer of the Year.
