Callie Birdsell

Callie Birdsell, agricultural agent with Cooperative Extension in Watauga County, was of four top winners in the Young Farmers and Ranchers Discussion Meet held at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual meeting in Salt Lake City.

Birdsell was one of three runners-up in the competition, which simulates a committee meeting in which active discussion and participation are expected. Participants are evaluated on their ability to exchange ideas and information on a predetermined topic.

The three runners-up, including Charlene Espenshade of Pennsylvania and Bona Heinsohn of Illinois, each received a $6,000 U.S. Savings Bond and a Farm Boss chainsaw, courtesy of Stihl Outdoor Power Equipment.
