KANSAS CITY, Missouri (May 26, 2021) – The American Shorthorn Association’s Executive Secretary/CEO, Montie D. Soules presented on a panel of industry leaders at the 2021 Missouri Cattlemen’s Leadership College’s Second Session last week in Kansas City.
The Missouri Cattlemen’s Leadership College (MCLC) identifies the next great leaders of the beef industry and cultivates their knowledge during the year. In their second session, attendees gathered in Northwest Missouri to hear from program sponsor, Merck Animal Health, meet with beef breed associations, including the American Shorthorn Association and visit member operations of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association.
“It is a pleasure to invest in the future of the beef industry.” Said Montie Soules, Executive Secretary/CEO of ASA. “Our breed has a strong history in the United States. We strive as an association to assist our members in providing a profitable beef product.”
On the panel, Soules shared with attendees the role he serves at the ASA, the impact the association has on the industry and the progress of the Shorthorn breed. As America’s first beef breed association, the American Shorthorn Association celebrates 150 years beginning this fall.
Attendees to the MCLC will convene again this fall and graduate at the 53rd Annual Missouri Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show.
