DENVER – The Red Angus Association of America is pleased to introduce the 2019 summer intern, McKenna Case of Akron, Colorado. McKenna will be working closely with the marketing team this summer, starting May 27.
“We are proud to welcome McKenna to our team here at Red Angus. Her livestock knowledge, work experience and engaging personality make her a perfect fit to visit with ranchers and assist them in increasing calf value through the Feeder Calf Certification and Allied Access programs,” said Harold Bertz, RAAA director of commercial marketing.
Case grew up in western Colorado and is a proud 4-H alumna. After graduating high school, she furthered her education by attending Northeast Junior College and then moved on to Colorado State University, where she is pursuing a degree in agriculture business.
An enthusiastic beef leader, Case wants to use her education and experience to be an advocate for agriculture and highlight stewardship of land and livestock. Upon graduation, she wishes to work in the beef industry, preferably in production agriculture. She has recently been involved in a commercial Red Angus operation in eastern Colorado.
“I am excited to have the amazing opportunity to work with such a great team at the Red Angus Association of America, and to further my knowledge of the beef industry by working closely alongside the marketing team,” said Case about her upcoming internship.
Throughout the summer, she will be conducting a number of farm and ranch audits for the Feeder Calf Certification Program and Allied Access tag programs for the RAAA after training with other marketing staff members.
The Red Angus Association of America serves the beef industry by enhancing and promoting the measurable advantages of Red Angus and Red Angus-influenced cattle. The RAAA provides commercial producers with objectively described cattle by implementing new technologies and utilizing scientifically sound principles that quantify traits of economic importance to beef producers in all segments of the beef industry.
