Title: Student Workshop to Kick Off Cattle Industry Summer Conference

DENVER - On July 10, the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) and American National CattleWomen, Inc. (ANCW) will host the second annual Student Day of Education - Knowledge and Practical Advice for a Successful Career. It will be held as part of the Cattle Industry Summer Conference at the Reno Hilton in Reno, Nev., July 10-13.

This event is designed for high school seniors and college students in any agricultural course of study, or that have an interest in working in agriculture. For just $35 (which includes lunch and breaks), students will access information that can greatly assist them in their career search, as well as interact with beef industry leaders. Students may also register for the entire Cattle Industry Summer Conference (including the Student Day of Education) for just $50 per person. Early registration for both the Student Day of Education and the entire conference opens May 11. Registration and hotel forms can be found at or by calling 303-694-0305.

The Student Day of Education event will begin with a Monday luncheon featuring Cattle-Fax Executive Vice President Randy Blach, discussing keys to success in entry level positions.  A panel discussion will then feature ag professionals from fields such as advertising, agricultural sciences and production agriculture. Participants will learn first-hand about the challenges faced by these industry leaders, and what makes them successful in their field. Rounding out the day will be breakout sessions focused on effective resume writing and other career development tips for breaking into the professional field of your choice. In the evening, participants will have the opportunity to network with beef industry leaders at the ANCW Ice Cream Social.

On Tuesday, July 11, students will have the opportunity to attend Beef Industry Issues Forums to learn more about current topics affecting the beef industry. Further details on the Beef Industry Issues Forums and other Cattle Industry Summer Conference sessions will be released soon.
