“For the Everyday Love of the Industry”
To celebrate and honour the late Andrea Crowe of Hi-Calibre Holsteins, Burntcoat, N.S., and her legacy as a passionate Holstein breeder and exhibitor and community minded individual, a committee of her friends are creating an annual award that recognizes:
* Ability to inspire others through positive attitude and industry involvement.
* Fostering industry knowledge and interest in youth.
* Good sportsmanship.
Andrea Crowe loved to work hard with family, friends and industry peers for the betterment of the industry, the breed, and for the pure joy of being part of something that wasn’t just a job, but rather a way of life. This award is meant to honour Andrea’s passion for life, positive attitude, and most of all her determination; attributes speaking to the “Hi-Calibre” of Andrea’s character and a life well lived.
Annually a committee will select a deserving candidate to receive the Andrea Crowe Achievement Award. The award will be presented during the heifer show of the National Holstein Show at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto, Ont., in November.
Young Canadian Adults, who demonstrate enthusiasm and dedication to the dairy industry, as well as active involvement in their communities, will be considered for the award. Candidates will be judged on their level of participation in any of the following areas: showing, exhibiting, and breeding – in any dairy breed, as well as volunteerism. Like Andrea, the individual must possess “the everyday love of the industry” through their personality, integrity and knowledge to make them well respected in the dairy fraternity.
Nominations for the award, along with a brief written biography of the nominee, should be e-mailed by October 1, 2013 to [email protected].
