Penn State University was named the national winning team of the 2009 National Collegiate Beef Quiz Bowl, presented by the National Cattlemen's Foundation, held Jan. 30 in Phoenix, Ariz. at the Cattle Industry Annual Convention. In addition to Penn State University, regional championship teams from Kansas State University, University of Kentucky and the University of Wyoming competed. Teams earned the privilege of competing in the finals by winning their American Society of Animal Science section's competition of the Academic Quadrathlon.
The members of this year's winning Penn State University team are Kristina McAllister, Jennifer Rassler, Amy Shollenberger and Elizabeth Smith. Dr. Dan Kniffen and Dr. Christopher Raines serve as the team advisors. Dr. James Males, head of the department of Animal Sciences at Oregon State University, served as the event moderator.
Each team is comprised of four animal science students who answer a series of questions relating to all areas of the beef industry during a double elimination competition. The range of questions include physiology, nutrition, reproduction, meat science, basic production information and current events affecting the beef industry. The Collegiate Beef Quiz Bowl continues to develop future leaders by engaging them in competition and presenting the contestants with the opportunity to be a part of the Cattle Industry Annual Convention. The National Collegiate Quiz Bowl is a joint program of the National Cattlemen's Foundation and the American Society of Animal Science.
