The application deadline is rapidly approaching for American Dairy Association North East’s 2020 Dairying for Tomorrow awards. The awards recognize farmers’ passion for dairying and their exemplary practices in three categories: animal care, community outreach and environmental stewardship. The program highlights farms that will help lead the industry into the future.
Overall and honorable mention winners in each category will receive a farm photo shoot. Photos will be made available to winners and will be used by ADA North East in social media campaigns and educational projects. Additionally, to help demonstrate the impact dairy farmers have on their local communities, overall winners in each category will have a donation (valued at $1,000) made in their name to an ADA North East retail or school initiative to drive dairy sales and develop young consumers’ enjoyment of dairy.
Awards will be presented in late Summer 2020. Winners will be notified in advance and invited to attend the award presentation.
