Resources

Beef Promotion

Women across Montana can be found at various events promoting beef. Local groups have donated beef to Senior Centers, served meals at trade shows and other events, hosted students at their ranches where they top off the educational experience with a tasty cheeseburger, and served samples of beef using recipes generated from beef check-off dollars.

If your Local CatteWomen’s group would like funding to assist with your promotional event please contact Kelsi Gambill, Montana CattleWomen Promotional Advisor, at kelsi.gambill@gmail.com.

 

 

 

Beef Education

The Montana CattleWomen offer a variety of educational learning experiences and activities for a range of ages/classes FREE for you as a teacher or a CattleWomen member to use.  We are proud to offer lessons and resources about Agriculture, the BEEF world, its lifestyles and becoming a better consumer by learning to purchase and prepare beef.

Our educational programs are funded by the Montana Beef Checkoff and local organization fundraisers.

Some of the materials are available for downloading and some of the programs may be taught by a presenter in your classroom.  Please contact, Corey Taylor at mtcwbeefed@gmail.com, and she will assist you in acquiring the necessary materials and a presenter, if one is in your area.

Please contact your local school personnel and members of your local CattleWomen/ CowBelle group, as they may know of a student from your local area who qualifies for the scholarship and wishes to apply. These students should be contacted and informed of the scholarship.

This scholarship is supported by a memorial fund, separate from the general fund of Montana CattleWomen. Tax-deductible donations from individuals and CattleWomen locals are the only sources of income for the fund. We would encourage you to consider making a donation to the scholarship fund. Most gifts are sent in memory of an individual. The family of that person is notified that the gift was made. It is also acknowledged at a memorial service during the annual state convention in December.  This scholarship was established in 1963 and has been awarded to worthy students since then.

Thanks for your help in supporting our young people and our industry through this scholarship.
