Melvin R. George of Davis received the W.R. Chapline Stewardship Award at the Society for Range Management’s 67th annual meeting held Feb. 8-13 in Orlando, Fla.

This award gives special recognition to members of the society for exceptional accomplishments and contributions in the application of the art and science of range management to specific to rangeland entities and to wildlife and domestic livestock on such lands.

During his career, George improved extension education programs and science-based technical advice to ranchers, public agencies and industry associations. He developed and implemented a water quality research and education short course for rangeland owners that helped more than 1,000 ranchers develop and implement water quality plans on more than 2 million acres of privately owned rangeland.

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, has received the Friend of the U.S. Rice Industry Award from the USA Rice Federation. Garamendi is a rancher and pear farmer.

“As a society, we’re growing increasingly detached from the land, so having members of Congress who understand farm issues is very important,” said Nicole Montna Van Vleck, a rice producer from Yuba City who presented the award.

“Congressman Garamendi is a strong advocate for our industry, was instrumental in helping get the Farm Bill through Congress, and is a true friend of the U.S. rice industry. We’re grateful for his support.”

Garamendi has partnered with rice farmers to expand conservation for sustainable water-fowl hunting, ensure that the Farm Bill recognizes differences between California temperate japonica rice and the South’s long grain rice, resolve trade matters, and address regulatory concerns.

Agricultural businesses contribute $3 billion to the 3rd Congressional District’s economy.
