Carter Cattle Company, 2022 National ESAP Winner 

As committed stewards of the land, cattlemen and cattlewomen must continuously evolve and innovate as they strive to be better producers and caretakers. Corteva Agriscience proudly supports these efforts and initiatives in multiple ways, including serving as the longest-standing sponsor of the Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP).

“It’s been our privilege for more than 20 years to help recognize the outstanding stewardship practices of U.S. cattle producers,” says Damon Palmer, Marketing Leader, Corteva Agriscience, U.S. Specialties. “We’re proud to help showcase farmers and ranchers who go the extra mile to produce high-quality beef while preserving the land for future generations.”

ESAP winners are selected annually by the Environmental Stewardship Award Selection Committee — a blue-ribbon group of representatives from universities, conservation organizations and federal and state agencies.

Seven producers are recognized as regional winners each year, and one national winner is selected from the regional award recipients.

Nominations for the 2024 Environmental Stewardship Award are due March 8, 2024. That’s a tight timeline, so consider compiling a nomination for 2025.

Such a prestigious award requires a fairly extensive nomination form. Supporting photos are helpful and can be gathered this summer head of submission next spring. Visit to learn more about the program and submit your nomination.
