Ness couple earns Farm Bureau honor


MANHATTAN -- Kansas Farm Bureau recognized members and friends at its 95th annual meeting last week in Manhattan.

Tyler and Becky Ryder, Ness County, were honored with the Achievement Award, which recognizes young farmers and ranchers who have excelled in their farming and ranching operations and honed their leadership abilities.

They won $500 in cash courtesy of Ford and a plaque. They will compete in January at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in San Antonio to win a 2014 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra.
