Fort Worth, Texas --  Summer camp just got beefed up.

Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association hosted it’s first TSCRA Cattle Raisers Roundup July 25-29. The event was open to students who have just completed their sophomore to senior years of high school and are interested in gaining in-depth beef industry knowledge. 

TSCRA Cattle Raisers Roundup included tours at cattle operations and beef packing plants, as well as the opportunity to speak with industry leaders. 

Hughes Abell, a rancher from Austin and the association’s president, said this was the first event of its kind from Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. 

“We are incredibly excited for this opportunity to support the next generation of cattle raisers,” Abell said. “This intensive experience will benefit participants no matter which segment of the beef industry they choose to enter.”
