Seeking Nominations for

2020 Teacher of the Year

 

Nomination Deadline: November 1, 2020

 

We have started our annual quest for “teacher of the year” candidates. We are asking for your help in soliciting nominations from school principals and fellow teachers. The deadline for submitting nominations is November 1, 2020. You can download the nomination form here or below.

 

The nominations must be an elementary, junior high, or high school teacher, who incorporates agriculture into their regular curriculum. For example, a teacher who teaches a one-week segment on agriculture and its importance to Nevada. Nominees may also include teachers considered in previous years but were not selected for the award. Nominations must include a completed NCA Teacher of the Year Application Form and an attached outline of the nominee’s curriculum that has integrated a unit about agriculture.

 

The winner of this award will receive a $1000 stipend to use on school supplies, donated by the Nevada Agriculture Foundation. The award recipient will also be recognized on the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association webpage and in their Sage Signals publication.

 

The heritage of Nevada is ranching. Nevada Cattlemen’s Association believes the future of our industry lies in the education of the generations to come, as we explore new and innovative methods of sustainability. Please help us in our efforts to support our teachers and their vital efforts in educating our youth.

 

Nominations may be submitted by email to nca@nevadabeef.org with “2020 Teacher of the Year Nomination” in the subject line; forms may be faxed to 775-738-5208; or sent by mail to, “Teacher of the Year Nomination”, C/O Nevada Cattlemen’s Association, P.O. Box 310, Elko, NV 89803.

The Red Angus Association of America in partnership with Anipro/Xtraformance Feeds recently published a white paper, “Phasing Out Select Grade Beef.” The paper examines the pattern of Select grade beef production and consumption over the past several years and offers insight into this pattern. Additionally, the paper predicts the future of Select grade beef and its value to the beef industry.

            The publishers believe this paper is highly beneficial to all cattle producers, both commercial and seedstock, as well as feeders and stockers. There is no Red Angus emphasis in the paper, it's strictly an informational/educational white paper. 

            The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association provides the paper, here, for your review.

 

 

 


We are pleased to announce and congratulate Lia McQueary of Ruby Valley, Nevada for being chosen the 2020 Nevada Cattlemen’s Association Scholarship recipient and Mackie Griggs of Elko, Nevada for being chosen as the 2020 Marvel/Andrae Scholarship recipient.

Lia has been very involved in different organizations including FFA, 4-H, Choir, Pep Club, Volleyball, and the National Honors Society. She plans to attend the University of Nevada, Reno and will major in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Lia’s future goal is to continue her education at UNR in Biochemistry and use the degree to further the agriculture industry. She plans to pursue working with plants to develop new herbicides that will work with animal genetics. She would also like to contribute to the beef industry by looking into genes that would improve efficiency of the modern beef cow and in turn the whole beef cattle business.

NCA Scholarship applicants are required to write an essay on any topic within the beef industry. Read Lia McQueary’s winning essay, “An Imposter Among Us” in the July 2020 issue of Sage Signals, pages 6 – 7.

Mackie is currently attending the University of Idaho and is majoring in Animal and Veterinary Science Production. She is a member of the NCA, Student Idaho Cattle Association, and a member of the Block and Bridle Club. Her background is primarily in the cow/calf side of the industry, however, this summer she will be interning at the Five Rivers Feeding Company in Malta, ID.

Mackie plans to pursue a career that relates to the beef industry and eventually follow in her father’s footsteps by someday managing the Maggie Creek Ranch where she grew up.
