Three associations receive scholarship grants from AgriLabs

Farm Forum

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. – AgriLabs awarded scholarship grants totaling $1,500 to three state associations as part of its booth promotion at the recent Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show in Tampa, Florida. The American National CattleWomen Foundation, the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation and the Grant County CattleWomen Association will each receive $500 to be used for an educational scholarship for a deserving youth during 2013.

When registering at the AgriLabs booth, convention participants designated which state association would receive a grant if their entries were drawn. Peggy Biaggi, of Merrill, Oregon, designating the American National CattleWomen Foundation, Diane Huston, of Ainsworth, Nebraska, designating the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation, and Jeannie Kiehn, of Quincy, Washington, designating the Grant County CattleWomen, were the three winning entries drawn during the convention.

“Asking beef producers to select an NCBA or American National CattleWomen state affiliate, or the ANCW Foundation, to be part of the scholarship grant program adds an additional element of fun to our NCBA convention scholarship program,” says Adam Yankowsky, Livestock Business Unit Manager, AgriLabs. “As a result, an additional $1,500 is in the hands of associations who will use this money to provide scholarships to three young people involved in the beef industry.”
