Arkansas Cattlemen’s Association Convention Convention-
Recently, some of our FFA students attended the AR Cattlemen’s Assoc. convention. At the ACA Convention, students volunteered at the tradeshow. Thursday morning students helped set up vendor booths in the tradeshow, and helped move tables, etc. After 2PM we were allowed to network with vendors and attendees. Students learned a lot about cattle management, hydraulics, metal fabrication, tractor safety, and how to support the beef industry. Friday, we helped the YCLC (Young Cattlemens Leadership Class) booth sell raffle tickets for their fundraiser. We sold 60 tickets valued at $100 a piece in less than an hour and a half! Later that night, we attended the ACA awards banquet where we sat with Senator Ricky Hill, Representative David Hillman, and Representative DeAnna Vaught. Saturday students disassembled vendor booths, and attended the Arkansas Junior Cattlemen’s Association Awards Banquet. Our chapter treasurer Marley Anderson was awarded 4th Overall High Point Bull and Reserve High Point Lim-Flex Bull.
