The Cattle Raisers Roundup is scheduled for July 24-28 across Austin, Victoria, Corpus Christi and San Antonio. Attendees will engage in progressive, thought-provoking activities including tours of cattle operations, beef processing facilities, and legislative offices as well as interactive educational sessions simulating real-world experiences.

“We are thrilled to be able to continue Cattle Raisers Roundup this year,” Schuster says. “This in-depth experience provides young leaders an unparalleled opportunity to gain beef industry knowledge and grow their professional development skills. Investing in the future generation of our industry has never been so important and we’re thrilled to welcoming this year’s Roundup students.”
