Spencer, IA: (Apr. 29, 2014) – A Dickens, Iowa woman is a regional winner in Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Mom of the Year contest.

Steph Essick is the contest’s Midwest regional winner. The designation comes with a $5000 prize and a chance to be named National Farm Mom of the Year.

Monsanto Marketing Communications Manager Tracey Mueller says Essick is an outstanding Regional winner.
