AMARILLO -- James E. Herring has been selected to receive the prestigious National Golden Spur Award for 2014.
Herring will receive the award on September 20, 2014 at the National Ranching Heritage Center on the Texas Tech University campus.
Herring is the 37th recipient and joins the ranks of men and women whose work and accomplishments have earned the highest respect of their peers.
"I am honored to know and have worked with James for many years", said Ross Wilson, president and CEO of Texas Cattle Feeders Association. "He is a visionary businessman with an uncanny ability to foresee and capitalize on opportunities in the beef industry, many of which have not been easy to achieve. At the same time, he gives back to the beef industry and community interests through countless hours of volunteer service. James loves and appreciates the tradition of the cattle industry while recognizing that we must continue to improve the way we produce and market beef to satisfy the ever increasing demands of U.S. and foreign customers. He is most deserving of this prestigious award."
