Club Spotlight: Ag clubs prepare for the spring semester


     It may still be early in the semester; however, the clubs on campus are already making big plans. Two of these clubs are ABAC Cattlemen’s Association and ABAC Horsemen’s Association. These clubs are ag affiliated and have been part of many ABAC events throughout the years. ABAC Horsemen’s Association provides a way for students to broaden their horizons on the equine industry in both western and English categories.

     Though the club is small, it is still growing and remains to be an active club at ABAC that is always looking for new members. The club has hosted many guest speakers that have provided networking and volunteer opportunities that the club happily takes part in. In the past, the club has worked alongside the Cattlemen’s Association as well as Agricultural Engineering Technology (AET) and Alpha Gamma Rho (AGR).

     This semester the club hopes to host monthly rodeos rather than hosting one every few months. They are also planning their trip to Indiana for a national convention and hope to travel to Kentucky for an industry tour.

     Those that are interested in joining the club may attend their meetings in Ag Science 137 every other Tuesday at 7 p.m.

     ABAC Cattlemen’s Association is a club for those interested in the cattle industry to fellowship with friends and seek to promote the industry as a whole.

     The club looks forward to the semester as well with its plans of holding meetings with different influential speakers. They also plan to clean the Bull Test Station and participate in Ag Awareness Day.

     In the past, the Cattlemen’s Association hosted numerous campus events such as their annual Corn Hole Tournament for Breast Cancer as well as their Beef Chili Cook-off. They have also continued to participate in Ag Awareness Day each year.

      Those that are interested in the cattle industry can attend the club’s meetings every other Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Ag Science 139.
