First Time; National Block & Bridle Convention set for Texas Tech in October
Officials with Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources announced today (May 14) that for the first time the university has been selected to host the '2014 National Block and Bridle Convention' on Oct. 23-25 in Lubbock.
"Block and Bridle Members are well known for their advocacy and shared love of the animal science industry," said Michael Galyean, dean of Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. "We'll certainly welcome them to Texas Tech and Lubbock."
Program organizers are expecting several hundred collegiate Block and Bridle members from across the United States to participate in next fall's South Plains' convention experience. Participants can expect an opportunity to build networking ties with peers and industry professionals about the future of animal production, as well as become more knowledgeable about topics facing the livestock industry.
Event activities are expected to range from education, both for members and the general public, to service to social. The National Block and Bridle Club claims to have some 92 chapters across the United States with a stated purpose of promoting animal agriculture and developing professional and leadership skills in members.
