The staff of Farm Industry News is proud of the recognition it received at the recent American Agricultural Editors' Association meeting held in Denver. In the "Issues" category of the writing contest, FIN received the top award (a total of 80 stories entered) for the four-part series "Who owns nature?" written by contributing editor Dale B. McDonald, which appeared in the March, Mid-March, April and May/June issues. It's nice to be recognized, but our true satisfaction comes from knowing that we're keeping you informed of important technology issues.
