Future Angus Stockmen Scholarship Application Available
The American Angus Association seeks college-age applicants for commercial-focused scholarship.
To ensure the next generation of commercial cattle producers is well prepared with the knowledge and tools to become successful, the American Angus Association and Allflex USA encourage ambitious young cattle producers to apply for the Future Angus Stockmen scholarship.
The Future Angus Stockman program is aimed toward college-age or recent graduates willing to learn about utilizing expected progeny differences (EPDs), incorporating DNA technology to make data-driven decisions, developing record-keeping plans using the Beef Records Service (BRS) or Maternal Plus® at a reduced cost and connecting with cattlemen from across the nation.
To be eligible to receive the $1,000 Future Angus Stockmen scholarship, applicants must be enrolled in the Future Angus Stockmen program and meet additional qualifications.
“Our goal is to recognize the efforts of a young producer and help them improve their Angus program through genetic tools and an educational scholarship,” says Scott Holt, North American marketing manager for Allflex USA. “The opportunity will undoubtedly advance their knowledge of new products and information available to commercial beef producers.”
The scholarship application deadline is Sept. 15, 2017. The Future Angus Stockmen scholarship will be presented at the 2017 National Angus Convention and Trade Show. Applications for the Future Angus Stockmen scholarship can be found on angus.org.
