Eight members of Collegiate Cattlewomen had the opportunity to travel to Nashville Tennessee from February 3-7 to attend the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Convention and Trade Show. They participated in presentations from well known leadership speakers Captain Richard Phillips and Archie Manning. They also attended the annual Cattlemen’s College where they were educated about different aspects of the beef industry including consumers, heard health, and how to manage a business. They also attended the American National Cattlewomen’s (ANCW) association general meeting. This is the national parent organization of our club. The best experience students had while at convention was the opportunities to network with industry leaders. They were able to attend a career fair held by ANCW and also talk to the thousands of companies that took part in the trade show. Members also got the chance to tour one of the largest cattle back grounding operations in the U.S. at CPC Livestock Commodities. The trip proved to be very educational and the attendees are grateful for the funding received from the College of Agriculture Sciences Office for Undergraduate Education to help support the travels.
