Frosini receives environmental award

Valley Ford rancher Guido Frosini was recognized last week for an Environmental Stewardship Award from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.

Frosini, who with his great aunt Ione Conlan operate Conlan Ranches California and True Grass Farms, was one of seven regional winners honored at the association’s Cattle Industry Summer Meeting in Denver.

“The cattlemen and women of this country take seriously their responsibility to the environment. Each of these award recipients serves as a shining example of how the beef industry is working to preserve open space and leave the land better than they found it,” said association President Bob McCan.

The industry group has given out the awards for 24 years.
