their qualified producers for the previous year. In March ESMQC
orders the award signs. First time achievers are presented with
a large blue sign. Previous year's achievers receive a smaller year
sign. Five consecutive year achievers receive a gold sign and ten
consecutive year achievers receive a large silver sign, fifteen
year achiever receive a large fifteen year sign and a certificate.
During the month of May signs are distributed to milk inspectors who present
them to their farms. Producers and contributors are recognized each year in a
press release and with a display at farm shows.
