Hunter recently presented several industry leaders with their prestigious Trailblazer Award.

With a tradition of recognizing individuals who have made significant contributions to the irrigation industry, Hunter honors a select group of professionals annually to receive the award. The Trailblazer Award is meant to showcase professionals whose innovation, leadership, and forward thinking not only benefit Hunter Industries, but also the irrigation industry as a whole.
