Utah Farm Bureau’s Tyson Roberts Selected 2021 Go Team Member of the Year
American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) announced its top Go Team Members for 2021 and Utah Farm Bureau member Tyson Roberts of Layton, Utah is one of them. His commitment to sharing his farm's story, reaching out to his community and being an ever-willing media interview stood out amongst his peers.
GO Team members are Farm Bureau’s key advocates and thought leaders, those whose views on a subject are taken to be authoritative and influential.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by such a great organization of agriculture advocates," Roberts said. "I appreciate the skills and relationships gained from the Utah and American Farm Bureau and the opportunities given to sere as a voice for agriculture."
Adrienne DeSutter of Illinois and Nancy Caywood of Arizona were also selected AFBF’s 2021 GO Team members of the Year.
“All three went above and beyond in their advocacy efforts over the past year,” said American Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall. “Their work included numerous media interviews, engagement with lawmakers, elected officials and candidates, and proactive work on social media to share information on important agricultural issues.
“We are very proud of these three GO Team members and the rest of the group. GO Team members continue to answer the call when asked and excel in key advocacy tactics for Farm Bureau.”
"Tyson is an incredible advocate for agriculture and we love the many ways he reaches out to others ," said Ron Gibson, Utah Farm Bureau President. "Tyson always makes himself available and has a wide influence with many different people. He is a great leader in our industry and very deserving of this recognition."
"Having farmers and ranchers that make themselves available, and that look for out-of-the-box ways at building relationships with others is a great asset ," said Matt Hargreaves, Vice President of Communications with the Utah Farm Bureau. "Tyson continues to build relationships with others and find common ground wherever he goes."
GO Team members must be Farm Bureau members in good standing and represent Farm Bureau in a favorable light. People are invited to join the GO Team because they participated in one of several leadership programs, or because they are nominated by the state Farm Bureau.
