Two girls speed down the highway at 90 mph.“Hey,” asks the girl at the wheel. “Do you see any police following us?” The other girl turns around. “As a matter of fact, I do.”

JERRY NORMAN NAMED 2018 Rancher of the Year!

SANTA ROSA, CA. ~ The Sonoma County Fair Board and members of the local ranching industry are hon- ored to have selected Jerry Norman as the 2018 Out- standing North Bay Ranch- er and the recipient of the J.W.

Jamison Perpetual

Trophy. Jerry has always had a love for cattle and working outdoors. Growing up in Humboldt County, he helped his step father run auction yards in Fortuna and Ukiah. Needless to say the cattle business became second nature to him. A few years after graduating high school, he moved to Sonoma County. Running one of largest herds of com- mercial cattle

in Sonoma County, Jerry focuses on “Like all magnificent things, it’s very simple.” ~ Natalie Babbitt

raising cattle that are pro- ductive in his herd, while at the same time desirable for today’s market. He believes it’s important to be able to change with beef industry standards as well as all as- pects in agriculture.

The Sonoma County Fair is proud to present the Out- standing North Bay Ranch- er award to Jerry Norman. The Fair celebrated the hon- or during its annual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 22 at the Fairgrounds and received the J.W. Jamison Perpetual Trophy.

He will also be recognized on Farmer’s Day at the Fair, Sunday, August 5 in Chris Beck Arena.
