If you have a farmer friend, neighbor or family member who epitomizes the title “Good Steward” then please take a minute to consider nominating them for the National Corn Growers Association’s Good Steward Recognition Program before the 5 p.m. CDT, Aug. 6, 2018 deadline.
We’re looking for a farmer who always does their job with a keen eye on improving the productivity and sustainability of their farm for future generations so if you know one let’s make sure they get recognized.
This year anyone can nominate a candidate for recognition if they are a Corn Grower member. NCGA affiliate states and organizational partners may also submit the nomination(s). One recipient will be selected from a field of nominees submitted by NCGA state affiliates and other corn industry and organizational partners.
Nomination forms must be completed jointly by the nominating party and the nominee and will be processed through NCGA. Selection of the Good Steward Recognition will be made by experts in the field of agricultural conservation, environment and sustainability. The announcement of the recipient will be made at Commodity Classic in Orlando, Florida, February 26-March 2, 2018. If you have any questions, contact Rachel Orf at NCGA, (636) 733-9004.
Most farmers today understand that clean water and healthy soil can and should go together with profitability, and farming practices are changing rapidly to accelerate sustainability goals. So, if you know someone who is doing a stellar job on their farm of demonstrating the economic and conservation value of soil management, it’s time to toss their hat in the ring.
