Senator Duane Ankney, SD 20, Colstrip, received the Montana Farm Bureau Distinguished Service Golden Plow Award during the organization’s summer conference June 7-9 in Great Falls.

Senator Ankney is no stranger to the legislature, after 16 years of service in both the House and the Senate. Full of stories, insight and wisdom, Sen. Ankney is coming to the end of his long tenure at the legislature.

“While Senator Ankney is known for his depth of knowledge in natural resources, especially when it comes to coal, he has always had the back of agriculture and supported Montana Farm Bureau,” noted MFBF President Hans McPherson. “This legislator is more than deserving of the Golden Plow Award, with constant high marks from Farm Bureau and undoubting support for the industry.”
