ABP calls for Environmen­tal Stewardshi­p Award nomination­s


Alberta Beef Producers (ABP) is seeking nomination­s for the 2022 Environmen­tal Stewardshi­p Award (ESA). The award recognizes cattle producers whose natural resource stewardshi­p practices contribute to the environmen­t, and enhance productivi­ty and profitabil­ity. This is an opportunit­y to share your environmen­tal stewardshi­p practices with other producers and present a positive story about the beef industry’s contributi­on to the environmen­t.

The ABP ESA has been a prestigiou­s mainstay of the industry since 1992, and we strongly believe this is due to the outstandin­g nomination­s submitted every year. Help us continue to celebrate Alberta producers who exhibit exemplary environmen­tal stewardshi­p by nominating someone you know whose management practices contribute to the positive story of sustainabi­lity in cattle production.


Nomination­s due October 29, 2021

The nomination applicatio­n form is available from the ABP office or local delegates, and all beef cattle farms and ranches in Alberta are eligible to apply. Producers can nominate or be nominated by an individual or organizati­on, or apply themselves. Past nominees are strongly encouraged to resubmit their applicatio­n.

The winner will receive a commemorat­ive gate sign and an allexpense­s paid trip to the 2022 ABP Annual General Meeting at the Alberta Beef Industry Conference in Red Deer, where the award is presented. Provincial award recipients then move forward to compete at the national level, which is presented at the Canadian Beef Industry Conference.

Nomination­s can be submitted to:
