Young Farmers & Ranchers District 6

District 6
Benjamin Putnam, Polk County

Benjamin Putnam has been working in his family’s Citrus and Beef-Cattle operation off and on growing up but has been a full-time employee for four years now after graduating from Auburn University. Putnam helps with the management and care of around 1000 acres of citrus and approximately 1,200 head of cattle. His day-to-day tasks consist of mowing, fertilizing, irrigation, and checking on the herds to make sure they are healthy and well. He is the co-chair of the Polk County YF&R and hopes to lead and be the chair after the next election. His outside interests include volunteering with the local Special Olympics, grilling and watching his favorite football team with his fiancée, whom he met at Auburn, play during his weekends.
