The 2010 Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame inductees were selected by a nominating committee and then voted on by their peers. The purpose of the Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame is to celebrate the rich traditions of the cattle-feeding industry and recognize individuals who have devoted their careers to preserving its mission and improving production practices. The two cattle feeders who will be inducted during the 2010 banquet will join the 2009 inductees – Paul Engler and W.D. Farr – in the elite Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame
New for 2010, an Industry Leadership Award will be presented to an individual who has made significant contributions to the cattle-feeding industry outside the feedyard. The annual Industry Leadership Award was created to honor an outstanding cattle-feeding industry advocate.
“We are extremely excited about this year’s Cattle Feeders Hall of Fame banquet,” says Betty Jo Gigot, chairperson of the Hall of Fame nominating committee. “The two new Hall of Fame inductees, as well as the recipient of the Industry Leadership Award, truly deserve recognition for their outstanding contributions to our industry.”
