The Lincoln University Centennial Award is awarded annually. It is awarded to a farmer who has made a substantial contribution to the University, either by hosting student field trips with a strong livestock emphasis and/or by supervising students practical work, or whose achievements are used regularly to demonstrate to students methods of reaching animal production goals or implementing high levels of stock management. The Award shall be held by the recipient for one year and some form of permanent recognition will be presented by Lincoln University. Nominations for the Award may be made by any member or group of University staff or students and must be in the Lincoln University Selection Committee's hands by the end of February each year.
