The American Soybean Association (ASA) is pleased to announce Ryan Speer of Jacob Farms in Sedgwick, KS has won the 2012 Midwest Region Conservation Legacy Award. Speer will be presented with an award on March 2, 2012 at the ASA Awards Banquet at the Commodity Classic in Nashville, Tenn.
The Conservation Legacy Awards Program is a national program designed to recognize outstanding environmental and conservation achievements by U.S. soybean farmers. Selection is based on each farmer’s environmental and economic efforts on their farm. Judges look for dedication to the land through cropland management practices, farmstead protection, and conservation and environmental management. There are three regional winners, from which a national winner will be chose and announced at the Awards Banquet in March.
