USPOULTRY has begun accepting nominations for the 2019 Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award. This award will go to family farmers in poultry and egg production who are good examples of environmental stewardship.

Nominees can be any family-owned egg producer or poultry grower that supplies product to a USPOULTRY member or even a USPOULTRY member who is an independent producer. Nominations must be made by an affiliated state poultry association or a USPOULTRY member. This is done by filling out an application that is provided by USPOULTRY. Please keep in mind that every integrator or egg processor can nominate one producer or grower for every processing facility in each state that supports their operations.

Semi-finalists will receive coverage of travel expenses and hotel accommodations for two nights so they may attend the awards ceremony during the 2019 IPPE, to be held in Atlanta, GA. They will also get a Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award sign, which they can display near their farm entrance.

Each regional winner will get a $1,000 cash award. The farm of every regional winner will be featured on the USPOULTRY website. The association will also publicize their farm’s award in local, regional, and even national media. For more details, click here.
