NCBA Stewardship Award Program Seeks Nominees


The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is looking for applications for its 2022 Environmental Stewardship Award. The program, established in 1991, annually recognizes the outstanding stewardship practices and conservation achievements of cattle producers across the nation. A common trait among all program winners is the desire to leave the land in better condition for future generations and inspire the next generation of land stewards. The award goes to producers who are actively working to protect and improve the environment because environmental stewardship and good business go hand-in-hand. Any individual, group, or organization is eligible to nominate one person or business raising or feeding cattle. Along with the application, one nomination letter and three letters of recommendation highlighting the nominee’s leadership in conservation are required for entry. Applicants do not have to be members of the NCBA. Applications are due by March 11, 2022. Seven regional winners will get recognized at the 2023 Cattle Industry Convention.
