Two Iowans have been selected to receive the 2014 Spencer Award for Sustainable Agriculture. They are southeast Iowa farmer Steve Berger and Leigh Adcock, who is outgoing director of the Iowa-based grassroots Women, Food and Agriculture Network. Berger operates a corn-soybean and farrow-to-finish swine operation and participates in field trials and hosts farmer-education events. The Spencer Award was created by the family of Norman and Margaretha Spencer, who farmed for many years near Sioux City. It carries a $1,000 cash prize and is administered by the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture at Iowa State University.
