Local farmers have the chance to be recognized statewide.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is looking for the next five finalists who will be awarded with this year's 2010 Conservation Farm Family Awards. It says the idea is to make others aware of farmers who are excelling in management of natural and human resources while meeting production and conservation goals.
If you would like to nominate someone, you can either pick up a form at your local county soil and conservation district or visit www.ohiodrn.com. Nominations must be sent by May 1st.
The winners will be honored at the Farm Science Review in September, receive a cash price, and be recognized in the "Ohio Farmer Magazine."
