Co-operator reporter Allan Dawson has been recognized for his work by the U.S. National Association of Agriculture Journalists (NAAJ).

The group is in the midst of its 2020 writing competition and is releasing results from individual categories.

He was awarded third place in the “Series” category for his work on the changing international trade landscape.

Judges praised his “fresh Canadian perspective” and “solid analysis” on the effect of the Trump presidency on trade and the profound impact of a bilateral U.S.-China deal on world trade.

Dawson was the lone Canadian on the podium. First place went to Todd Neeley of DTN/The Progressive Farmer and second place was awarded to Mikkel Pates, of AgWeek.

There were three honourable mentions, including Ron Lyseng of The Western Producer.
