Block and Bridle Club
The Penn State Chapter of the National Block and Bridle Club is open to any Penn State student with an interest in the animal sciences industry. Exciting club activities include the welcome back picnic, club calf sale, industry tours, and the fall and spring meat sales. The club also holds an annual "Beef up the Blood Supply" spring blood drive and also collects"Blood for Bats" for the Philadelphia Zoo. Club members have a chance to travel to Harrisburg for the Keystone International Livestock Exposition, to help with the judging contest. Each spring, the club holds the annual Little International Livestock Exposition, where students have the opportunity to learn hands on how to prepare the exhibit horses, sheep, swine and beef cattle. Every year the club participates in the National Block and Bridle Convention. Previous conventions have been held in Texas, Missouri, and Kentucky.
Club meetings are held the first and third Thursday of each month in 101 ASI Building.
