It was my first trip to Washington, D.C. and my first time at the Animal Agriculture Alliance Stakeholders Summit but more than anything it was a week to remember!
I’ve previously written about being named high individual and WKU Block and Bridle taking top club honors in the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s College Aggies Online program.
The AAA folks were gracious enough to invite Aaron and I to attend their annual summit to accept my award and represent Block and Bridle. Needless to say, we jumped at the opportunity.
For a couple of college agriculture students, this summit was a collection of the who’s who in animal agriculture.
We were eating meals next to executives of major meat companies, chatting between sessions with researchers and meeting people who are on the cutting edge of advocating for agriculture.
The most flattering thing about our experience was these industry folks were just as excited to meet us!
They welcomed us to their conversations, asked our opinions on major animal agriculture issues and patiently answered every one of our questions about their work in the industry.
I was so excited to hear from so many awesome speakers and take in our nation’s capital all in one week that I couldn’t put my camera down.
Below is an multimedia photo album of my photos from the Animal Agriculture Alliance Summit. Enjoy!
