The winner of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Foundation’s prestigious Doan Award is Dustin Hoffmann, farm broadcaster with KLGR Radio in Redwood Falls, Minn.

Hoffmann’s winning entry titled, Yearly Cattle Vaccinations in Southwest Minnesota, focused on herd health management, detailing the care and low-stress treatment of the calves.

The Doan was announced at the conclusion of the Agri-Pulse Farm Bill Summit on Monday by none other than Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-KS). The Doan is named after Stewart Doan, a farm broadcaster and senior editor at Agri-Pulse, who passed away suddenly in May 2012. This is the third year for the award, which is funded by a gift from Agri-Pulse through the NAFB Foundation.
