Nominations are open until Aug. 1, 2019, for the National Stocker Award. It is the only national award dedicated to highlighting the stocker sector’s essential role in the U.S. cattle and beef industries.
The National Stocker Award—sponsored by BEEF magazine and Zoetis—seeks to recognize the stocker sector’s most effective practitioners for their efforts, while offering a platform for peers to learn more about how others add pounds for a profit.
Criteria for nominees
• Majority of annual cattle income is derived from stocker production.
• Owners who also manage the operation. For example, family ranch or operation partnerships are acceptable, but owners not involved directly in the operation don’t fit the spirit of the award.
