Beauregard Cattlemen’s Association Quarterly Meeting, 1/27/2012

Last night, 1/272012, the Beauregard Cattlemen’s Association (BCA) had its quarterly meeting. Chuck Melsheimer, BCA President, discussed the addition of new scholarship funding for students who will be studying agricultural topics in college.

Chuck also discussed the idea of having a BCA meeting in Merryville, LA to invite local cattlemen to be a part of BCA.

Danny Cole, past President of the Louisiana Cattlemen’s association, described some of his experiences with the LCA during his term. His narrative about his first commercial airplane flight was entertaining to say the least.

Tommy Smith, LCA District V Representative, brought his greetings from LCA and told a Boudreax joke. For more information on LCA, please visit their website: http://www.labeef.org/

Keith Hawkins, County Agent, brought a slide show about the upcoming Master Cattleman’s Program. Here are some of the notes from the presentation:
