The manager of the Wyoming Seed Certification Service was recently recognized at the Wyoming State Fair and Rodeo for services provided to Wyoming farmers and ranchers.
Mike Moore was presented the Wyoming Department of Agriculture’s (WDA) Excellence as an Agriculture Industry Supporter Award in Douglas Aug. 16. The Wyoming Seed Certification Service is housed at the University of Wyoming’s Powell Research and Extension Center.
Moore joined and became manager of the seed service in 1997.
“This is our chance to thank you for your many contributions to Wyoming agriculture, particularly in the area of technical services,” says Stacia Berry, deputy director of the WDA.
Moore has helped agriculture across Wyoming for more than 22 years as seed certification manager; as a member of the Wyoming Crop Improvement Association; and certifying seed for the state’s plant breeders, Berry says.
“Directly, you have worked with our division in the approval of special need pesticide registration, and have constantly been an important resource for our seed inspectors and bean graders while always being a pleasure to work with,” Berry says.
