Environmental Stewardship Program Rewards Cattlemen

Mon, 19 Dec 2011 10:02:20 CST

Environmental Stewardship Program Rewards Cattlemen Cattlemen from across the nation are annually recognized for outstanding environmental stewardship practices and conservation achievements through the Environmental Stewardship Award program. The award program was established in 1991 by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) and the National Cattlemen's Foundation. The award is made possible by the generous support and sponsorship of Dow AgroSciences, LLC, the United State Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.


"The Environmental Stewardship Award highlights our nation's cattlemen for their excellence in land stewardship and management and allows cattlemen to showcase to the public the positive environmental benefits of farming and ranching," said NCBA CEO Forrest Roberts. "The award also helps cattle producers across the country learn about examples and ideas of how to engage in beneficial environmental practices on their own farms and ranches. Award recipients excel in the areas of water management, wildlife, vegetation, air, soil, sustainability and the overall leadership abilities of their farms or ranches."


Nominations for the 2012 award are due by March 2, 2012. Nominations can be submitted by any organization, group, or individual on behalf of a U.S. cattle producer. However, individuals and families cannot nominate themselves. Past nominees are eligible and encouraged to resubmit an application. Previous winners may not reapply. Applications are available online at the Environmental Stewardship website. For further assistance or information about the program, contact Jill DeLucero at jdelucero@beef.org. .
