Know an oustanding producer/landowner? Nominate them for one of these awards.

October 14, 2009


Nominations for the annual Environmental Stewardship Awards are now open for 2010. The award, now in its 20th year, recognizes producers at the regional and national level who demonstrate outstanding stewardship practices and wildlife habitat improvement, while maintaining profitable cattle operations. 

Any organization, group, or individual may nominate a U.S. cattle producer. From the field of nominees, seven regional winners are selected by an expert panel representing the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA), conservation and sportsmen’s groups, federal and state agencies, and land grant universities.

 Judges consider the management of water, wildlife, vegetation, air and soil, as well as the nominees’ leadership and the sustainability of the business as a whole. Regional winners will be announced in July 2010. From the seven regional winners, judges will choose a national winner to be announced at the Cattle Industry Annual Convention in January 2011.

The program is funded by Dow AgroSciences and the Natural Resources Conservation Service. For more information, including examples of past winners, visit: or contact the National Cattlemen’s Foundation at (303) 694-0305.
