Once again, the Bureau County Farm Bureau, Bureau County Pork Producers Association and the Bureau County Cattleman’s Association are sponsoring the Agricultural Service Award. The purpose for this award is to provide an opportunity for Bureau County agricultural organizations and businesses to honor individuals who have given exemplary leadership and service to agriculture and farmers in Bureau County and beyond.
To qualify, a nominee must be a resident of Bureau County who has given exemplary leadership and service to agriculture in Bureau County and/or a broad segment of the region, state or nation. A nominee must have provided service to agriculture but may come from disciplines that serve other areas in addition to agriculture, i.e. education, research, public relations, agribusiness, public affairs and other areas. Such individuals should also have a history of giving time and/or resources to promote the aims, programs and services of Bureau County agricultural organizations.
If you would like to nominate a person you feel fits the service award criteria, contact the Farm Bureau office in order to pick up a nomination form. Nominations forms are due to the Bureau County Farm Bureau office no later than May 31.
