NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Today, the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation (NCF) announced they awarded over $56,000 in scholarships to help the next generation of the agriculture industry in their academic pursuits. The scholarships were awarded to fifty-one distinguished students.

President of the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation, Ryan Loeske stated, “The Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation believes helping the next generation of cattlemen pursue their education is the key to continuing the world-class success of the Beef state. This year’s outstanding applicants are undoubtedly going to do great things for the future of the agriculture sector and we look forward to watching these young scholars grow their knowledge.” He continued, “None of this would be possible without the generosity of our many donors and those who gave to our Retail Value Steer Challenge Fundraising Project. It is humbling to see communities across Nebraska come together to help these students.”

All scholarship recipients will be recognized at the Nebraska Cattlemen Midyear Meeting in Valentine, Friday, June 10, during the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation Lunch.

Background

Established in 1968, the Nebraska Cattlemen Foundation’s mission is to advance the future of Nebraska’s Beef industry by investing in research and education programs. The Foundation’s success and its ability to endow scholarships, sponsor leadership and education programs, and assist with research and infrastructure projects has been possible only because of the support from the Nebraska cattle producers and allied industries. As the Foundation grows, expands, and moves forward in its mission to raise funds for educational and scientific activities that benefit the state’s beef producers – the board asks you to consider investing in your industry through the Foundation.
