ASI calls for nominations for ag sustainability award
The Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis is calling for nominations for the 2012 Eric Bradford and Charlie Rominger Agricultural Sustainability Leadership Award.
The award is meant to recognize and honor individuals who exhibit the leadership, work ethic and integrity epitomized by the late Eric Bradford, a livestock geneticist who gave 50 years of service to UC Davis, and the late Charlie Rominger, a fifth-generation Yolo County farmer and land preservationist.
Nominations are welcome for UC Cooperative Extension farm advisors and specialists as well as UC Davis graduate students, faculty members, and in special cases, alumni, for their work toward agricultural sustainability.
Award recipients will receive a cash prize and may be invited to give a lecture sponsored by ASI, which manages the award and selection process. Letters of nomination should be submitted to the chair of the selection committee by Jan. 2, 2012.
