Good Farm Neighbor Award Nominations Open
10-04-2019 in Awards
Do you know farmers who go above and beyond to be excellent producers, neighbors, and stewards of the land? The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF), in partnership with WHO and WMT radio’s “The Big Show” and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award.
“Since its inception 16 years ago, 147 diverse Iowa farm families have been recognized for going the extra mile,” said Gabrielle Glenister, CSIF assistant field specialist. “There are so many deserving farmers who are engaging in the latest conservation and animal care practices and we encourage all Iowans to nominate those good folks for this award.”
Nominations are due November 15 and may be submitted online at www.supportfarmers.com/goodfarmneighbor.
The Wergin Good Farm Neighbor award is presented by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and Iowa Ag Radio Network and is made possible by the financial support of the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers.
The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers was created by farmers to help farmers raise livestock successfully and responsibly. It’s a partnership involving the Iowa Beef Industry Council, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Poultry Association, Iowa Soybean Association, Iowa Turkey Federation and Midwest Dairy Association.
The non-profit, non-partisan organization aids farmers at no cost. CSIF does not lobby or develop policy. Farm families wanting a helping hand can contact the coalition at 800.932.2436.
