August FCW Report

By now, the novelty of swimming and summer has worn away and most of us are looking forward to fall. In a few short weeks, kids will return to school (and all the parents said Amen) and soon after we’ll celebrate the start of the 2015-16 college football season. The latter has me thinking about a coach’s work during the off-season. Much like a team’s

Reyna Hallworth, FCW President

I was recently reminded of the John Maxwell quote: “Change is inevitable, growth is optional.”  How is FCW growing to keep beef promotion and education efforts relevant in our ever-changing society?  We as members have changed, too.  What growth needs to occur for the association to meet the needs of the membership?

A  lot has happen-ed since the last time I wrote an article. In March I was able to show my market steer and my show heifer at the Florida Strawberry Festival. After that, I traveled to Tallahassee with my family to take part in the Legislative Quarterly. This is one of my favorite events throughout the year. I love being able to talk to congressman

Hello everyone! What a busy month!! First I went to Lincoln High School in Tallahassee. I got to present to seven of their culinary classes and talk about BEEF! They loved the presentation and seeing pictures of Brahman bulls, real cowboys, working dogs and Florida’€™s beautiful ranches. We discussed nutrition, cooking, myths, and some fun recipes. These are some of my favorite types of events
