FARM Excellence Awards to Recognize Farms and Evaluators he National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program today launched a new awards program to recognize farms and FARM evaluators who demonstrate excellence in their engagement with the FARM Program.

“We want to identify and congratulate those who go above and beyond with implementing FARM Program principles and values in their businesses,” said Emily Yeiser Stepp, Vice President of the FARM Program. “The awards will allow us to highlight the best dairies and evaluators who uphold on-farm social responsibility principles every day on their farms and in their daily work.”   

Award categories include Animal Care & Antibiotic Stewardship, Environmental Stewardship, Workforce Development, and FARM Evaluators. Nominations are open from July 1 – Sept. 1. Farms or evaluators can be nominated by fellow dairy farmers; members of their communities; extension, cooperative or processor staff; veterinarians; themselves or others.

Nominated farms must have a current FARM Program evaluation in the respective category area and must be in good standing with the program. Evaluators who are nominated must be FARM Program certified in any of the program areas as of Aug. 31.

Winners in each category will receive a hotel room and travel for two individuals to attend the Dairy Joint Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nov. 15 –17. Visit the FARM Excellence Awards page for more details.
