Ben Eggers Honored with Continuing Service Award


OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (June 14, 2013) — The Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) honored Ben Eggers with the Continuing Service Award during the organization's 45th annual meeting and research symposium in Oklahoma City, Okla., June 12-15, 2013. The award recognizes those who have made a significant contribution to the industry.

Name a job to be done within BIF, and in the last few years Eggers has done it. He served on the BIF board of directors from 2004 to 2012. He served as president of the board in 2011 and past president in 2012. Prior to being president he served as the co-chairman for the BIF annual convention in Columbia, Mo. in June 2010. 

Eggers joined Sydenstricker Angus in 1982. He was elected to the Angus Association board of directors in 1998 and served as president of the board in 2006. 

Sydenstricker Angus received the 1997 Certified Angus Beef LLC (CAB) Seedstock Commitment to Excellence award, and the 2001 BIF Seedstock Producer of the Year award.  A strong commitment to the performance principles of BIF, Sydenstricker was an early adopter of Angus’ Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR®) program and today he carefully evaluates new technologies in regard to their application to genetic improvement. 

If it is possible to bleed beef cattle, it could be said that the team of Ben and Darla Eggers do so in the state of Missouri. 

Continuing Service award winners have made a major contributions to BIF past, present and future.  This includes serving on the Board of Directors, speaking at BIF conventions, working on BIF Guidelines and other behind the scene activities. As BIF is a totally volunteer organization it is the contribution of time and passion for the beef cattle industry that keeps BIF moving forward.

Eggers was presented the BIF Continuing Service Award at a luncheon Friday,June 14, in Oklahoma City.
