7 U.S. Ranching Operations Lauded For Top-Level Stewardship

These seven unique cattle operations, all regional honorees recognized for their outstanding efforts in conservation and stewardship, will compete for the 2013 Environmental Stewardship Award Program’s national title. The winner will be announced during the cattle industry convention in Nashville, TN, in February.

The Environmental Stewardship Award Program is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences; USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS); U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; the National Cattlemen’s Foundation; and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). Nominations for the 2014 awards are now being accepted. Learn more at www.environmentalstewardship.org.
