Flower Hired as Gelbvieh Association Summer Intern
LINCOLN, NE – The American Gelbvieh Association announces the hiring of Payton Flower, Scottsbluff, Nebraska, as association intern. Flower will be assisting in all aspects of AGA operations including member programs and services support, member education, and American Gelbvieh Junior Association Junior Classic activities.
Growing up in western Nebraska provided Flower with the opportunity to develop and expand her interest in agriculture. She exhibited cattle, hogs, and sheep during her involvement with 4-H and FFA and as a high school freshman she started a small cow-calf enterprise with her father.
Flower is currently a junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) majoring in agricultural economics, specializing in public policy. At UNL she serves as a new student enrollment orientation leader and campus host for the university where she facilitates campus tours and creates content for the upcoming year’s virtual freshman orientation. She’s also a student strengths coach with UNL Clifton Strengths Institute and a member of the Nebraska Corn and Soy Collegiate Ambassador program.
“As an intern for the AGA, I am looking forward to networking and gaining experience within the beef industry. Particularly, I am excited to build upon my background knowledge and gain skills to effectively advocate on behalf of producers and their perspectives.”
“Being in close proximity to one of the top animal science universities in the Midwest has opened up great opportunities to recruit talented interns and offer hands-on experience in the beef industry,” says Megan Slater, AGA executive director. “We are pleased with the chance to have Payton on board for the summer.”
Flower began her internship on June 1 and will be working at the AGA office through the summer months.
The American Gelbvieh Association is a progressive beef cattle breed association representing 1,100 members and approximately 40,000 cows assessed annually in a performance-oriented total herd reporting system.
