Paul and Wendell Morton of Lebanon, Indiana operate one of Indiana's most successful commercial farms. It has been analyzed by economists, judged by management teams, scanned by college classes, photographed by foreign visitors, and generally admired by all those who appreciate good farmers.
Yet, that farm is not the only reason we wish to honor these two men.
Despite their extensive farm operation, they find time to give of themselves to their community.
Paul is a director of the Producers Marketing Association, Eastern Order Buyers, and the Chicago Producers Livestock Credit Corporation. He has served as president of the Boone County REMC for 16 years and formerly as a director of the Statewide REMC. He is past president of the Indiana Cattle feeders Association, and a delegate to the National Sheep and Wool Council. In Boone County, Paul is a Rotarian, an elder in the Lebanon Presbyterian Church, and on the Extension Advisory Committee. Both of his children are Purdue graduates-Linda, a home economist with the National Dairy Council, and George, in the home farm organization.
