MUNSON ANGUS NAMED REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL
STEWARDSHIP AWARD WINNER

     KLA members Chuck and Deanna Munson of Junction City are among six regional winners who will compete for the NCBA Environmental Stewardship Award. The national winner will be announced during the Cattle Industry Convention, January 31-February 2 in Phoenix.
     Munson Angus is located on the western edge of the Flint Hills. The multi-generational, farm-to-plate business is designed to balance financial sustainability with responsible resource management. Five generations of Munsons who have worked on the farm embrace the stewardship ethic of “leaving it better than you found it.”
     ESA was established by NCBA in 1991 to recognize outstanding land stewards in the cattle industry. Other regional winners vying for the national award this year are from South Carolina, Iowa, Texas, Colorado and Arizona.
