'I Am Angus' features UNL feedlot management interns


Nebraska

Like many occupations, a career in agriculture evolves with experience--up-close, hands-on, real-life experience that builds student appreciation and knowledge in a field of study. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln provides that through its one-of-a-kind Feedlot Management Internship Program.

The internship prepares students to meet a growing need for trained, responsible feedlot managers. And interestingly, many of the enrolled students are women.

In a recent episode of "I Am Angus," a documentary series produced by the American Angus Association, five UNL women are featured in a discussion about future leaders in the cattle industry.

"The business of producing beef requires a number of steps--from the ranch to the retailer, and everywhere in between," said Galen Erickson, UNL animal science professor. "And we need talented people involved to provide a quality product for consumers. That's why young people are fundamental to this industry."

UNL students involved in the Feedlot Management Internship Program and featured on "I Am Angus" Dec. 5 are: Stephanie Moore, Cheyenne, Wyo.; Caitlin Swartz, Winchester, Ky.; Kaylee Reedy, Maryville, Mo.; Meredith Bremer, St. Edward, Neb.; and Feedlot Internship Recruiter Kari Gillespie, Kevin, Mont.

"I Am Angus," focuses on the heart of the Angus cattle business--its people, their heritage and why they are involved in agriculture. The hour-long documentary series explores each corner of the beef industry, Angus heritage and how animal agriculture meets the challenge of feeding a growing population.

Sponsored by the Angus Foundation, "I Am Angus" broadcasts on RFD-TV. The channel is distributed by more than 625 cable operators, and can be found on DirecTV channel 345 and Dish Network channel 231. Check local listings for more information.
