The Idaho Hay & Forage Association has awarded its Don Hale Hall of Fame Award to Dennis Strom, a past president of the association who continues to serve on its board of directors.
Strom took over the family farming operation at Hill City, Idaho, shortly after high school and built the more than 3,000-acre operation into an excellent alfalfa hay enterprise, according to the association.
He is active in the Camas County Creek Cooperative Weed Management Area, the Water District No. 37B advisory board and the Republican state central committee for Camas County.
“Dennis has a quiet style of leading but is a very dedicated individual who promotes the hay and forage association and the production of quality alfalfa hay in Idaho,” Will Ricks, the association’s president, said in presenting the award.
The award is named for the late Don Hale of Blackfoot, a valued leader who played a major role in founding the association. It was presented to Strom at the association’s recent annual convention in Burley.
