The Missouri Dairy Hall of Honors recently announced its latest award winners. Joe Horner, an Extension specialist in the Division of Applied Social Sciences, earned the Dairy Leadership Award. Established in 1971, the Dairy Leadership Award recognizes individuals who have rendered outstanding service and provided leadership for the Missouri dairy industry over a period of time.
The Missouri Dairy Hall of Honors Foundation was established in 1988 following the merger of the Association of Missouri Dairy Organizations with the Missouri Dairy Association. The Foundation has two goals. One is to maintain and perpetuate a Dairy Hall of Honors to recognize outstanding leadership in the Missouri dairy industry including excellence of achievement among dairy cattle breeders. The second goal is to provide an archive for the preservation of records and memorabilia of the Missouri dairy industry in cooperation with the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
