Lynette and her husband John have been involved in the turkey industry for 38 years where they raise light hens in Morrison County.
Lynette is active in supportive roles for local organizations and her church. She assists the Flensburg Fire Department with the annual grant request for equipment from the Department of Homeland Security. Each year, she volunteers to help the Swanville Lions Club during the Swanville SummerCarnival and as a bell ringer for the Salvation Army.
To Lynette, it is important that agriculture is viewed favorably by the general public and that established farmers and the community work to support and mentor young, first time farmers. In addition, she'd like to see that the workforce is trained for the skills needed in the farming community.
Lynette and John have three children and two grandchildren. She enjoys the great outdoors, high school sports and activities, gardening, music, cooking, reading, entertaining, socializing and spending time with friends and family.
