CHS Farm Family of the Year

The Dickson Family 
Mer Rouge, La.

With a successful rice operation in Mer Rouge, La., the fourth-generation Dickson farm family is dedicated to helping feed the world. Farming is a way of life for the Dickson family, which is admired for instilling in their children “farm values such as family, loyalty and hard work.”

The family is a proud supporter of agriculture programs at the University of Louisiana-Monroe.


The Landrum-Kennedy Family 
Monroe, La.

This mother and son duo raises corn, cotton and soybeans along the Ouachita River just south of Monroe, La., where they proudly work land that has been in the family for five generations. 

The family cheers for the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks every chance they get, as Brenda Landrum-Kennedy attended the university.
