National Dairy Shrine Award Applications Now Available
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/09/2019
The National Dairy Shrine is seeking nominations for its most prestigious awards. Applications are now available for the 2019 Guest of Honor, Pioneer, and Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder Award.
The Guest of Honor is given to a contemporary dairy leader for outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the dairy industry.
Each year, three to four living or deceased Pioneers of the dairy industry are honored by NDS for their service and
leadership in the dairy industry.
Meanwhile, the Distinguished Dairy Cattle Breeder is an award which recognizes active, progressive dairy producers who, through their expertise in managing a dairy breeding herd based upon sound genetics and business principles, serve as a
model of success for fellow breeders throughout the country.
All these award winners' accomplishments are on permanent display in the National Dairy Hall of Fame at the National Dairy Shrine Museum in Fort Atkinson.
Nominations or applications must be submitted on official forms by March 15. For more information, go to: www.dairyshrine.org.
