On July 6th, the U.S Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) opened the nominations for the Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award-2022. The award recognizes exemplary environmental stewardship by family farmers engaged in poultry and egg production.
Those eligible for the award include any family-owned poultry grower or egg producer supplying product to a USPOULTRY member or an independent producer who is a USPOULTRY member. Nominations are due Oct. 29.
Nominations for the 2022 competition may be made by:
Each integrator or egg processor may nominate two growers or producers for each processing facility in each state that they operate.
“Poultry growers consistently utilize best management practices to enhance environmental stewardship on their farms. The commitment and resourcefulness that our award winners and finalists exhibit each year through their environmental management practices is commendable,” said Greg Hinton, vice president of sales, Rose Acre Farms, and USPOULTRY chairman.
Winners of Family Farm Environmental Excellence awards will receive a trip covering travel expenses and hotel accommodations for two nights to attend the 2022 International Poultry Expo, part of the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), in Atlanta, Georgia. Each will also receive a Family Farm Environmental Excellence Award sign to display near the entrance of their farm.
The winner for each region will be named at a special award ceremony that will take place at the end of the Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit, held in conjunction with IPPE, on Jan. 25, 2022. Each regional winner will also receive a $1,000 cash award. In addition, the farm for each regional winner will be spotlighted on USPOULTRY’s website, and the Association will assist in publicizing the farm’s award in local, regional, and national media.
