Nominations for the 2022 World Dairy Expo Recognition Awards are being accepted through 1 February 2022. The expo is once again honouring dairy industry leaders in 3 categories, namely Dairy Producer of the Year, Industry Person of the Year, and International Person of the Year.

Organisations, academic staff, producers and others involved in the dairy industry are encouraged to nominate individuals to recognise their outstanding work and dedication to the dairy industry.

Qualifications for each of the 3 World Dairy Expo awards being presented include:

Dairy Producer(s) of the Year: Presented to an active dairy producer whose primary source of income is derived from his or her dairy enterprise. This producer excels in efficient production and the breeding of quality dairy animals while incorporating progressive management practices. Award recipient’s community, government, marketing and World Dairy Expo involvement will also be considered.

Industry Person(s) of the Year: This award is presented in recognition of an individual’s excellence in research, development, education, marketing, manufacturing or other fields, which are a part of an industry or institution that provides goods or services to the dairy industry. A resident of the United States, this award recipient may be an active dairy producer whose primary achievements are industry focused.

International Person(s) of the Year: Living primarily outside of the United States, the individual who receives this award will be recognised for his or her contribution to international research, development, education, marketing, manufacturing or other fields, which are a part of an industry or institution that provides goods or services to the international dairy industry.
