Scholarship targets students with emphasis in beef production
For a second year, the National Cattlemen’s Foundation (NCF) and Fort Dodge Animal Health are accepting applications for the Fort Dodge Animal Health Legacy Scholarship.
Through producer participation, Fort Dodge Animal Health sponsors five scholarships of $5,000 each. Three scholarships will be directed to veterinary school students who have designated an emphasis in beef production. Two scholarships will be directed to undergraduate students enrolled in an animal science program.
NCF is now accepting applications until April 15, 2009. Applications are available at the NCF Web site, http://www.nationalcattle mensfoundation.org/. Winners will be announced at the Cattle Industry Summer Conference in Denver, CO, July 14-18, 2009. Cattle producers used their Fort Dodge Animal Health invoices to help support this scholarship program—in turn, helping cattle production and cattleproducing families for the next generation. — WLJ
