LoAyne Voigt presented 2015 Distinguished Service Award

The North Dakota Crop Improvement and Seed Association gives an award every year to an individual that has made significant contributions to agriculture at the local, county, regional, and state level. This has become a very difficult task, as they have had some great nominees. This year the award went to LoAyne Voigt.

Louie has been the Renville County Extension Ag Agent in Mohall for over 25 years. She goes above and beyond her call of duty in the way she mentors many new Extension Ag Agents. She helps them in all areas of agriculture. She is very active in assisting them with the understanding and implementing of the Seed Increase Program and answering their many questions. She has hosted various new agent trainings around the state. Louie also has a strong Seed Increase Program in her county. Annually, LoAyne offers spring crop clinics in Renville County and shares this information with neighboring counties.

With the assistance of the Renville - Bottineau Ag Improvement Association, she coordinates a county research/demonstration site and crop tour each year. Louie is very instrumental in the programming of the annual (71st) North Central Seed Show and Ag Expo which consists of a seed show, commercial exhibits, ag and home and energy programs, just to name a few.

She has been a member of numerous local and state boards and has received several Program of Excellence awards. LoAyne has also participated in national programs such as National County Agentsí Association meeting, Public Issues Leadership Development (PILD) conference, and the National Extension Leadership Development (NELD) program.

The North Dakota Crop Improvement and Seed Association was proud to present the 2015 Distinguished Service Award to LoAyne Voigt.
