Award Nominations

Each year the MDIC committee recognizes individuals in the dairy industry for going above and beyond their everyday roles. 

Individuals are recognized by 2 awards, either the Industry Service Award or the Field Person of the Year Award. Industry members are encouraged to nominate co-workers or fellow industry workers by  completing nomination forms (click on award name above) or filling out the form below. 

Please be sure to fill out the entire form and hit the BLUE submit at the bottom.

Nominations must be received by May 4, 2022.

***NEW*** For this year we will be verbally recognizing those who have retired from the dairy industry since the 2021 MDIC, along with those who plan to retire in 2022.  For those people to be recognized, please have names submitted to Steve Lehman at lehman@mimilk.com by May 15.  There doesn’t need to be a form for this; just an email with the individual’s name, number of years working in the dairy industry, and the employer that they will be retiring from.
