Beef Leaders explore industry

Amanda Nolz

Tyler Urban, senior animal science student at SDSU from Lennox, SD.

The school year has come to a close, but for several agriculture students at South Dakota State University (SDSU), the learning has just begun. Eleven students have advanced to the second year of the SDSU Beef Leaders Program, and will enjoy the opportunity to explore the beef cattle industry from a new and different perspective.

Tyler Urban, Makayla Schreck, Jennifer Bosch, Matt Dybedahl, Rachel Patrick, Sara Berg, Rebecca Lutter, Stephanie Steffes, Justin Krell, Danielle Schubert and Michaela Braesch are agriculture students who had to write an essay, complete an application form and be interviewed in order to received a slot in this prestigious program established by Kelly Bruns and Sara Winterholler, both professors in the department of Animal and Range Science. In its first year, hundreds of students participated in the SDSU Beef Leadership Seminar, where students listened to industry professionals speak each month at the SDSU Animal Science Complex.

In order to qualify for the second year, students had to attend the lectureship series and write essays on the things they learned from the speakers. Featured presenters included Bernie Rollin, with the PEW Commission, Barry Jennings, executive director for the South Dakota Beef Industry Council and representatives from several beef companies throughout the state.
