Environmental Steward Award
Pork producers are constantly looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact as they work to feed the world. The Environmental Steward Award from the Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA) annually recognizes those producers who go above and beyond in caring for the environment.
Applications will be evaluated on the following criteria: manure/nutrient management, soil and water conservation, air quality, public relations, wildlife habitat, and environmental management innovations. Other considerations are the commitment to the We Care® principles, and the contributions they make to their community.
Nominees must be IPPA members. Only one award is given each year. The recipient is honored at the Iowa Pork Congress Banquet in January where they will receive a $2,500 cash award. In addition, the person nominating the award recipient will receive $500. Questions can be directed to Ben Nuelle, or call 515-225-7675.
Nominations for the 2023 Awards are due Aug. 1, 2023.
