Alberta Farm Animal Care is seeking nominations for a trio of awards that recognize individuals or groups who have made exceptional contributions to livestock welfare.
Three awards are given out annually.

The Award of Distinction for Industry Leadership recognizes those who integrate animal welfare into their core business strategy, striving to achieve more than expected regarding animal welfare and setting a higher standard.
The Award of Distinction for Innovation honours those who have developed a new process, product, or source of knowledge that has made a significant impact on improving the welfare of livestock and the industry.
Nominations should be submitted to Kristen Hall at [email protected] by Feb. 15.
