Every year, Alberta Beef Producers has the distinct privilege of celebrating producers who exemplify environmentally sustainable cattle production, through the Environmental Stewardship Award.
We thought it would be fun to go through our archives and highlight some ESA alumni.
And maybe, just maybe, you’ll consider nominating someone for the 2023 ESA.
Bar None South Ranches, 2008
Glen and Kelly Hall of Bar None South Ranches received the ESA in 2008. At that time, the Halls were part owners and managers of the 9,000-acre operation, located east of Parkland, to the Little Bow River Valley and west in the Porcupine Hills.
“For decades we have been working with our partners on being committed to our land and water,” said Kelly. “When we were asked to be nominated for this award, it was an honour to know someone else recognized the efforts we have made.”
Round Rock Ranching, 2014
The McGrath family received ABP’s 2014 ESA for their commitment to Round Rock Ranching, located near Vermillion, and north of the Battle River.
“Conservation is important to me because that’s just the way we were raised,” said Sean McGrath. “We’ve discovered here or maybe knew all along is that the better we do at conservation, the lower our costs are and the more value we produce. The land keeps getting better.”
