Magagna, Tinsley to join Wyo. Ag Hall of Fame
Douglas – Jim Magagna and Del Tinsley, both well known in the Wyoming agricultural community, have been selected by Wyoming Livestock Roundup readers to join the Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame.
Magagna, whose family has been ranching in western Wyoming for around 100 years, serves as executive vice president of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association. He’s served as president of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association, the National Public Lands Council and the American Sheep Industry Association.
Long-time Wyoming Livestock Roundup publisher Tinsley has long been known for his willingness to take a stand on behalf of the state’s agricultural industry. Now serving as state director for USDA Rural Development in Wyoming, Tinsley has brought increased awareness to opportunities for the state’s agricultural industry to grow and prospser.
“It’s great to see two individuals I consider friends and respect for their service to the industry join the Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame,” says Roundup Publisher Dennis Sun. “I hope Wyoming’s agricultural community will join us in congratulating these deserving individuals and thanking them for their many years of work on behalf of Wyoming’s agricultural industry.”
Annually, readers of the Roundup nominate deserving individuals they believe have devoted their time and energy to improving Wyoming agriculture. A panel of three judges scores the nominations to chose the year’s honorees. Tinsley and Magagna will be honored during a picnic held in conjunction with the Wyoming State Fair. Watch future editions of the Roundup for details.
