Community Service and Cattle{wo)men

 

 

Not only are cattlewomen and cattlemen very active within the agriculture community, they are also known for their roles in local communities.

45 heavy-duty trash bags, 5 hours and a rain shower later, we accomplished our mission!

 

 

This weekend, a massive community service event was hosted by my university. Fellow cattlewomen students and myself had the opportunity to reach out to needy members of the community.

Our assigned community member was Mrs. Bobby. Because of a severe stroke years prior, she was unable to keep up with her once beautiful flower gardens.

We spent the morning raking leaves, cleaning gutters, pulling weeds and conversing with a local community member. The elderly women depended on the help of others to help her clean up every year.

In the end, Mrs. Bobby said that in all the years she had been involved in the project, she had never been so impressed with the work ethic of the volunteers and the end result of the project.

 

 

Moral of the story: Beef producers are active in helping others and being involved in their local communities. Not only are many producers involved, but they often go above and beyond expectations. Producers know the difference between a job-well-done and a job-half-done. We do all we can to make a positive impact in our communities.

God bless, folks!
