The Promotion Board will also pay tribute to past Carroll County Distinguished Dairy Service Award recipients.
In 1988, the Dairy Promotion Board awarded the first Distinguished Service Award posthumously to Lloyd Sharp. The award is presented to those who go above and beyond to promote the dairy industry. Since that time, the board has awarded several Carroll County farmers and promoters the award. The board is asking past recipients or anyone who knows of a past recipient to contact John Neider at 330-627-5157. Recipients will be recognized and will receive a free meal compliments of the dairy board.
