Golden Spur Award

The National Golden Spur Award is the most prestigious honor given by the ranching and livestock industries in recognition of accomplishments by an individual. Established in 1978, the award has been conferred upon iconic industry leaders whose unparalleled devotion to land and livestock has earned them notable respect and admiration from their peers. The award also emphasizes the humanistic, scientific and technological contributions of the ranching and livestock industries to society. Six ranching and livestock organizations sponsor the award: American Quarter Horse Association, National Cattlemen’s Foundation, Ranching Heritage Association, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, Texas Cattle Feeders Association, and Texas Farm Bureau.
