Cargill is pleased to announce the three winners of their first White Heart Award contest, honoring the people who go above and beyond to support dairy farms. The award was launched in May, in connection with Mental Health Awareness month, to shine the light on the positive things that were happening despite unprecedented challenges and help lift the spirit of the industry.

“We would like to congratulate all three of the White Heart Award winners and thank them for their dedication to dairy,” says Josh Hushon, strategic marketing lead for Cargill’s North America dairy business. “The program had a lot of great nominations from dairy farmers across the country. Reading the stories of how our communities have rallied around each other during these times was very uplifting.”

–          2020 Central White Heart Award Winner Maria Lammers, nominated by

Kathryn Frankenberg from Frankenberg Family Farm.

–          2020 Eastern White Heart Award Winner Steven Entwistle, nominated by Betty Holman from Entwistle Brothers Farm.
