Lunch and Learn sessions are designed to give cattlemen and women the opportunity to learn information in a more in-depth, hands-on approach while addressing frequently asked questions about Association programs and services. Different from evening Angus University webinars, attendees will have the ability to feel more one-on-one with the speaker, receiving information and having their questions answered, all while learning how to do various activities.
These sessions will be held on Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m. central throughout the months of May, June, July and August. Sessions will last between 20-30 minutes and allow for 10-15 minutes of questions from the audience. You can find information for May and June sessions below.
Please note that registration for Lunch and Learn events is limited. If you are interested in one of the sessions, sign up early before spots are filled. The sessions will be archived and available on the Angus University website for reference after the session is complete. If you can’t attend and would like to, email Jera Pipkin, education coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the session you are interested in to be sent the recording.
