Title: Reminder: ESAP Nominations Due March 16

WASHINGTON - The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) is still accepting applications for the 16th annual Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP). Any group or organization is eligible to nominate one individual/business who raises or feeds cattle. The deadline for nominations is March 16.

Sponsored by NCBA, Dow AgroSciences and the USDA - Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), ESAP annually recognizes seven regional winners who exhibit outstanding commitment to protecting the environment and improving fish and wildlife habitats, while operating profitable cattle operations.  Nominations are accepted for seven regional awards, and these seven winners compete for the national ESAP award. The most recent national winner, Lightsey Cattle Company of Lake Wales, Fla., was announced at last month’s Cattle Industry Annual Convention in Denver. Lightsey Cattle Company was nominated for the award by the Florida Cattlemen’s Association.
