BEEF National Stocker Award 2014

BEEF magazine developed the National Stocker Award in 2006 to recognize stocker operations and backgrounders for their contributions to the beef industry. Moreover, the program serves as a platform for top producers in these businesses to share ideas and learn from one another.

Sponsored by Zoetis, the winner of the ninth  annual National Stocker Award will receive $2,000 in Zoetis products, an October 2014 cover story in BEEF magazine, and $1,000 in covered expenses to attend the 2015 Cattle Industry Convention, Feb. 4-7, in San Antonio, TX.
