The National Dairy Farmers Assuring Responsible Management (FARM) Program today announced that the deadline to nominate farms and FARM Evaluators for a FARM Excellence Award has been extended to Friday, Sept. 3.
Award categories include Animal Care & Antibiotic Stewardship, Environmental Stewardship, Workforce Development, and FARM Evaluators. Farms or evaluators can be nominated by fellow dairy farmers; members of their communities; extension, cooperative or processor staff; veterinarians; themselves or others.
Nominated farms must have a current FARM Program evaluation in the respective category area and must be in good standing with the program. Evaluators who are nominated must be FARM Program certified in any of the program areas as of Aug. 31.
Winners in each category will receive a hotel room and travel for two individuals to attend the Dairy Joint Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, Nov. 15-17. Visit the FARM Excellence Awards page for more details.
