NCBA Environmental Award Winner To Be Announced At Convention

NCBA Environmental Award Winner To Be Announced At Convention

Program recognizes environmental stewardship practices and conservation achievements of U.S. cattle producers

Among the many activities and events happening during the 2013 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen's Beef Association Trade Show in Tampa, Fla., will be the announcement of the Environmental Stewardship Award Program national award winner. The winner will be announced during an evening reception on Thurs., Feb. 7, 2013.

Program recognizes environmental stewardship practices and conservation achievements of U.S. cattle producers

Established in 1991 by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, the program has recognized the outstanding stewardship practices and conservation achievements of U.S. cattle producers for more than two decades. Award winners are honored for their commitment to protecting the environment and improving fish and wildlife habitat while operating profitable cattle businesses.

During the 2012 Cattle Industry Summer Conference in Denver, Colo., seven regional winners were announced. Bold Ranch, Winifred, Mont.; Circle Square Ranch, Ocala, Fla.; Funk Farms Trust, Shirley, Ill.; Glenowen Farm, Round Hill, Va.; Slovek Ranch, Philip, S.D.; Sparrowk Livestock, Clements, Calif.; and 77 Ranch, Blooming Grove, Texas will be judged on management of water, wildlife, vegetation and soil, as well as the nominee's leadership and the sustainability of his or her business as a whole, with a national winner chosen from the seven finalists.

"America's farmers and ranchers are passionate about their land, and it shows through conservation and environmental stewardship efforts," said NCBA President J.D. Alexander. "The cattle industry is continually improving upon our environmental sustainability, and these seven finalists set an example that we should all strive to achieve. We look forward to naming one of these operations as our national ESAP winner next month in Tampa."

The ESAP award reception will begin at 6 p.m., and is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences; the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resource Conservation Service; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; the National Cattlemen's Foundation; and NCBA.
