Now accepting applications for 2009 W.D. Farr Scholarship

The National Cattlemen's Foundation announces the 2009 scholarship honoring the late W.D. Farr, of Greeley, Colo. Two annual $12,000 graduate scholarships, bearing his name will be awarded to outstanding graduate students who demonstrate a commitment to a career in the beef industry through classes, internships or life experience.

W.D. Farr Scholarship applications will be available at the Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show at the National Cattlemen's Foundation booth or on the National Cattlemen's Foundation website. The deadline for submitting applications is April 15.

W.D. Farr was president of the National Cattlemen's Association in 1970, and was the first chairman of the board of trustees for the National Cattlemen's Foundation. His career in agriculture spanned 75 years and included innovations in cattle feeding, uniform beef grading, water conservation and banking. Farr died at 97 years-of-age in August 2007.

Last year, the response to the W.D. Farr Graduate Scholarship Program was outstanding, with 48 applications from 28 universities across the country, and three international applicants. Contributions to the scholarship fund total over $200,000, with fundraising efforts pursuing additional dollars to support more young scholars in the beef industry.

"We have been able to honor the late W.D. Farr and his life's work in agriculture, by recognizing the industry's future leaders who share in his drive and vision," said Bob Josserand, chairman of the NCF Board of Trustees."
