We also have a competitive piece with a beef skill-a-thon contest. The winner in each age division will receive a hat compliments of Greeley Hat Works! Another opportunity that might be of interest for your students, would be the Young Cattlemen’s Breakfast sponsored by Gallagher North American on Saturday morning, complete with keynote speaker Rhett Laubach. This is available for anyone 25-45 years old with education tailored just to them. Although there is an additional ticketed price associated with the breakfast, the networking opportunities will be priceless.
