Referred to by Swedish scientists as the “Nobel Prize of Agriculture,” the Bertebos Prize is a pretty big deal. This year’s co-recipients are Youling Xiong, an animal and food sciences professor for the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, and Jan Delcour, professor at the University of Leuven, Belgium.

Sand County Foundation, the Kentucky Agricultural Council and the Kentucky Association of Conservation Districts are accepting applications for the Leopold Conservation Award Program in Kentucky. The $10,000 award honors Kentucky farmers, ranchers and other private landowners who voluntarily demonstrate outstanding stewardship and management of natural resources.
