Nominations Open For 2023 Iowa Conservation Farmer Of The Year; Forms Due By May 12

Nominations are now open for the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship’s 2023 Iowa Conservation Farmer of the Year. The award is presented annually to an Iowa farmer who has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to environmental stewardship and leadership in conservation. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig says, “We continue to see record conservation engagement within Iowa, and it is important that we recognize the farmers across our state who are leading the way in implementing additional proven practices.” In conjunction with the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, the Department presents nine regional awards and one statewide award selected from the nominees. Iowans can nominate a deserving farmer by penning a 100-word letter detailing the individual’s long-term commitments to soil conservation and water quality. Forms must be submitted to the local soil and water conservation district office by Friday, May 12. The recipient will be announced during the 2023 Iowa State Fair.
