Boone County — More than 300 people turned out Thursday evening to pay tribute to two longtime Boone County farmers and their wives, recognizing their outstanding careers in local agricultural and in the community.

Terry Darnell and wife Barbara, and Ed Strong and wife Sharon, were presented the Distinguished Agricultural Career Awards at the 76th annual Boone County Breeders and Feeders Association Banquet-Fish Fry in the Farm Bureau Community Building on the Boone County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Both couples received plaques after Master of Ceremonies David Mohler shared the farmers’ backgrounds.
