This fall, Colorado State University’s Collegiate Cattlemen and Cattlewomen clubs merged to become Collegiate Stockgrowers. While the club primarily focuses on cattle, it also includes dairy cattle, sheep, goats and swine.
The main fundraiser for the club this year will be the Taylor Beef Symposium on December 6, 2014 in the renovated animal sciences building on the main campus. The event will include a tour of the building, four guest speakers and a catered dinner. The cost of the event is $40 per person, although students will be eligible for a discount rate of $20 at the door with their student I.D.
The symposium topics include: a market outlook and the macroeconomics in the cattle industry, entrepreneurship and expansion, diversification in todays’ industry, as well as a policy updates and market forecast. The event will have a silent auction and cow pie bingo.
Early registration, by November 29, is encouraged to guarantee a spot for the symposium and dinner.
