Nominations are wanted for the the 2013 Master Pork Producer and Environmental Steward awards.
The Iowa Pork Producers Association began the program in 1942.
“Iowa’s pork producers represent some of the most efficient, innovative and adaptive in the industry,” said Tyler Bettin, IPPA producer education director. “It is important that we continue to recognize the efforts of our best and brightest producers. Doing this demonstrates to consumers our commitment to the environment and production of safe food while also educating other producers of best management practices and industry opportunities.”
Award recipients will be recognized at the 2014 Iowa Pork Congress in January and will receive a $1,000 cash award.
Nomination forms and instructions can be found at iowapork.org.
