"Cattle producers are the original stewards of the land. For generations, cattlemen and cattlewomen have shared a commitment to improving their operations with an understanding that better management techniques improve the productivity of our farms and ranches. Those improvements allow us to produce high-quality beef while also giving back to our communities in the form of beautiful open spaces, wildlife habitat and of course, a high-quality beef product," said NCBA President Marty Smith. "These seven operations provide an excellent demonstration that agricultural stewardship can improve habitat and the environment everywhere across the nation."
Established in 1991, by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association to recognize outstanding land stewards in the cattle industry, the Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP) is generously sponsored by Corteva Agriscience; McDonald's; USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS); U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and the National Cattlemen's Foundation.
The operators of these seven cattle farms and ranches were awarded regional environmental stewardship awards and each will advance to be considered for the 2021 National Environmental Stewardship Award, to be announced in 2021.
