I'm always picture heavy, but these last couple of trips we were far to busy "going going going!" with little time for picture snapping!
The college-age folks at the Pacfic Northwest Young Cattlmen's Tour! There were 120 "young cattlemen" who went on the Industry tour, probably 80% of those were university students. At the cattlemen's college on Saturday, there were over 400 people present as that's how many seats they had and there were still people standing. Thanks to the OCA, WCA, Simplot, Beef Northwest, Northwest Farm Credit Services & the many others involved for making this trip happen! 1/21-24/2010
The Alamo, in San Antonio, Texas! We were in Texas for the National Cattlemen's Beef Association Convention from 1/27-31/2010. It was a very informative convention, filled with lots of fun and city sightseeing. We also visited Dallas & Houston, so I got to see some of the biggest cities in the US all in one weekend! Thanks to the YCA for helping us with our expenses. Sadly, Oregon State lost to Kansas State in the Academic Quadrathon, but we tried our hardest. We had a rough first round about 'history & politics'! The cattle judging was also very unique, a lot of classes with breeds we don't see up in the northwest.
