The Pendergrass family of Charleston, AR, winners of the 2008 BEEF Stocker Award, will be profiled on the March 10 edition of “Cattlemen to Cattlemen” on RFD-TV. The program will air at 8:30 p.m. (EST), with reruns on March 11 at 10:30 a.m. (EST), and March 14 at 9 a.m. (EST).
Pendergrass Cattle Co. is operated by father-son team John Paul and John Frank. The duo captured the Backgrounding Division en route to claiming the 2008 National Stocker Award presented annually by BEEF magazine and sponsored by Elanco Animal Health. The award, which recognizes the nation's top practitioners in three categories – summer grazing, fall/winter forage, and backgrounder/drylot, is open to any stocker or backgrounding operation that derives the majority of its cattle-based income from the stocker and backgrounding businesses. And 2009 nominations are now open online.
