Tomorrow's Top Producer Horizon Award Winner
Do you demonstrate exceptional marketing, technology or finance skills with your farming or ranching operation? Are you under the age of 35? If so, apply to win the Tomorrow’s Top Producer Horizon Award.
Top Producer will be honoring one outstanding young producer this year at its Tomorrow’s Top Producer event, which is set for July 20-21 in Nashville, Tenn. The winner will also be recognized during the 2017 Top Producer Seminar, which runs Jan. 24-27 in Chicago, Ill. 
The winner will receive a trip for two to both events, as well as a DJI Phantom 3 model drone, courtesy of DuPont Pioneer.
The qualifications are that a producer, under the age of 35, should demonstrate excellence in:
  • Marketing
  • Farm finance
  • Family and employee relations
  • Technology
  • Environmental stewardship
Entrants are judged on entrepreneurial originality (50%), financial and business progress (30%) and industry or community leadership (20%). Any farmer, rancher or partnership that gets at least half of their income from farming and farm-related ventures may apply.
Deadline to enter is Nov. 15, 2016.
