ANCW's Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program Participants Spend Time in Oklahoma This Week

Fri, 19 Mar 2021 08:50:16 CDT

ANCW's Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program Participants Spend Time in Oklahoma This Week Developing beef advocates and leaders for the cattle industry is the goal of the Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program and this week the two program participants invested two days of training in Oklahoma.

Hosted by American National Cattlewomen, Inc., the advocacy program provides an outlet for students to use their unique strengths to connect with consumers and peers to promote beef.

Two winners of the Collegiate Beef Advocacy Program were selected in February and they were in Oklahoma this week participating in media training and touring agribusinesses, ag organizations and OSU.

The two students are Carli Eubank, Pocasset, Okla., and Kathryn Slavick, Mandan, N.D.

Eubank is an Agribusiness and Agricultural Communications double major student at Oklahoma State University.

Slavick is an Animal Science and Microbiology major with a minor in Pre-Veterinary Medical Sciences at North Dakota State University.

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Editor Sam Knipp conducted the media training session Thursday morning.

I think beef producers have great stories to tell and I want to get those stories out to the public so they can know the hard work and care that goes into the industry, Eubank said.

We use social media and hosting campus events to reach consumers and peers, she said.

This beef advocacy program provides many network connection opportunities as I have met many amazing women in the industry, Eubanks said.

For Slavick, the pandemic prompted her to explore ways to tell the truth about the beef industry and the advocacy program was a good fit.

During the pandemic I realized the need because there is a lot of misinformation out there, she said.

We need beef advocates because our voice does matter, she said.

People who are far removed from the farm donít understand where food comes from and having that knowledge has an impact on many decisions in society, Slavick said.

As a veterinarian Slavick said she wants to educate others and share the beef story.

I want to help producers in any way I can, she added.
