Environmental Stewardship Award for Alberta Beef Producers

Alberta Beef Producers is now accepting nominations for the 2024 Environmental Stewardship Award (ESA).

Each year, this award recognizes beef producers who exemplify environmentally sustainable beef cattle production, providing a way to celebrate producers who go above and beyond in their commitment to environmental stewardship.

Alberta cattle producers nominate their peers for the award and a panel of representatives from conservation and agriculture assess the candidates, examining the stewardship goals and activities of the nominees including land management, water quality, wildlife, animal welfare, and leadership activities in the community to determine a winner. 

The ESA Awarding Committee will consider nominees’ philosophy and management plan, riparian areas and water, wintering or feeding sites, manure, wildlife and wildlife habitat, and animal welfare. They will also consider nominees’ involvement in the community, extension, and environmental stewardship activities, as well as their goals, implementation, and accomplishments.

The ESA recipient(s) will receive a commemorative gate sign and an all-expenses paid trip from anywhere in Alberta to the 2024 Alberta Beef Industry Stampede Summit in Calgary, AB. Provincial award recipients then move forward to compete at the national level. The national recipient is announced during the Canadian Beef Industry Conference.

Deadline for nominations is March 15, 2024.
