Roger Ingram, University of California Cooperative Extension county director and adviser in Placer and Nevada counties, has been selected to receive the 2013 Pedro Ilic Award for Outstanding Educator.

“The selection committee was highly impressed by your support of small-scale California ranchers and farmers through your leadership of the Grazing Academy, Niche Meats Conference and Placer Grown, your publication of the Foothill Rancher Newsletter, your significant support of High Sierra Beef and the Sierra Foothills Meat Buyers Club and your major role in the development of the regional mobile poultry processing trailer unit,” Shermain Hardesty wrote to Ingram. Hardesty is UC’s Small Farm program leader and cooperative extension specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Davis.

“Your research and outreach efforts have benefited many small ranchers and farmers in Placer and Nevada counties, and throughout the state,” Hardesty added.

Ingram received the award at the California Small Farm Conference in Fresno on March 11.
