SPECIAL TO
THE DALHART TEXAN

Donald and Cheri De Jong of Hartley, Texas, received the 2016 Top Producer of the Year award in front of more than 700 of their peers in Chicago, Ill., in late January.

Sponsored by Bayer CropScience and Case IH, the Top Producer of the Year contest, in its 17th year, represents the best in the business of farming.

A panel of judges chooses three finalists from a slew of applications based on entrepreneurial originality, financial and business progress, and industry and community leadership.

The De Jongs started their dairy career milking 1,000 cows in Dublin, Texas. With growth in mind, they relocated near Dalhart, and during the course of a few years expanded their operation to 17,000 cows, producing milk for organic and conventional markets.
