  • Norlan Ferguson was given the Friend of Agriculture Award during the McPherson County Farm Forum Wednesday.
    Ferguson retired from Ferguson Production in 2012 but has served on the McPherson agriculture committee for a number of years.
    “I greatly appreciate it,” he said of the award. “Agriculture has always been a passion of mine. I never got to utilize that passion for my work life, but I've always enjoyed it.”
    Ferguson has volunteered on a number of other local boards and committees and has done significant work with the city's annual When Pigs Fly barbecue event.
    “Being on the agriculture committee has been a pleasure, because I've never been associated with so many people who are self-starters,” he said. “I get credit for all the fine things that happen. It's not deserved. Because if something needs to get done, someone steps up and says, 'I'll take care of it,' and it's over. I want to thank everybody again.”
