Jeanie Rowbotham Named 2024 Arkansas Ag Woman of the Year

Jeanie Rowbotham of Hagarville has been named the 2024 Arkansas Ag Woman of the Year by Arkansas Women in Agriculture (AWIA). The award, established by AWIA in 2023, celebrates the outstanding contributions of women in Arkansas to the agriculture industry. Rowbotham was selected as this year’s recipient by a panel of judges from a pool of nominees.

The award ceremony took place at the 2024 Arkansas Women in Agriculture Conference held in Hot Springs on April 2nd. The event brought together nearly 300 women from across the state involved in agriculture.

Rowbotham serves as a 4-H extension agent in Johnson County for the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service. She and her husband, Theron Rowbotham, own and operate Infinity Ranch in rural Johnson County with their two children, Mae and Tate. The Rowbotham family manages four commercial turkey houses contracted to Butterball and operates a commercial cow/calf operation.

Expressing her gratitude for the recognition, Rowbotham shared, “I’m extremely proud of our family farm, and my life’s work is agricultural education. Instilling a love of farming into my children and the youth I work with through the 4-H program is my passion.” 

In addition to her agricultural endeavors, Rowbotham conducts school and community programs focusing on STEM, health, and agriculture. 

Rowbotham holds a master’s degree in agricultural economics from the University of Arkansas and a bachelor’s in agribusiness from Arkansas Tech University.
