Cattlemen’s Tailgate Party celebrates stewardship

Invesco Field hosted the Cattlemen's Tailgate Party Thursday evening. A light snow fell throughout the day dusting the facility and making it look truly like the home of the Denver Broncos.

Winners of the National Cattlemen’s Foundation Environmental Stewardship Awards were announced at the “halftime” of the Cattlemen’s Tailgate Party Thursday evening.

Bill and Nancy Couser of Nevada, Iowa, were named the winners out of seven regional winners from around the nation. Couser Cattle Company is a second and third generation multi-faceted operation that annually feeds and finishes 5,000 to 6,000 head of cattle and farms 5,000 acres, producing both corn seed and soybean seed. The business philosophy centers on working to ensure that both profit opportunities and environmental performance are present in cattle and farming operations.

NCBA’s Environmental Stewardship Award Program (ESAP), now in its twentieth year, was created to recognize beef producers who make environmental stewardship a priority on their farms and ranches while they also improve production and profitability.
