Choosing to make conservation the bedrock of their farming operations, this year’s regional winners of the Conservation Legacy Award believe in preserving land, water and wildlife. At the same time they’re confident their stewardship efforts still reap economic returns. They thrive on making conservation a part of their daily farming decisions.

In its 10th year, the American Soybean Association’s (ASA) award applicants come from three regions – South, Midwest and Northeast. Final selections were judged by a panel of conservation professionals.

All three regional winners and spouses or guests will receive an expense-paid trip to Commodity Classic in Tampa, FL, March 3-5. Winners also receive plaques and the overall winner – announced at Commodity Classic – gets a yard sign in recognition of the award.

The Conservation Legacy Award program is sponsored by ASA, Monsanto and Corn & Soybean Digest.
