NOMINATE A GOOD FARM NEIGHBOR TODAY!

Good Farm Neighbor Award

 

 

The Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award recognizes Iowa livestock farmers who take pride in doing things right, and go above and beyond as environmental stewards and animal caretakers. It is an opportunity to tell the story of responsible livestock farming in Iowa and highlight the families who make it so successful.

 

NOMINEES MUST MEET FOUR CRITERIA

  1. Family operation
  2. Active in their community
  3. Produce livestock or poultry to the highest animal care standards
  4. Dedicated to conservation and/or environmental stewardship on their land

 

The Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award is made possible by the financial support of the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers and is presented with the Iowa Department of Agriculture + Land Stewardship and The Big Show.

 

If you know a family deserving of the Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award, submit the nomination form to the CSIF team! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Brian Waddingham at bwaddingham@supportfarmers.com.
