At Legends Cattle Company, we appreciate the opportunities that have been provided to us by previous generations and we hope to influence the next generation of leaders in agriculture. That’s why we offered the 2019 Legends scholarship to eligible high school seniors and students enrolled in college, university, or vocational schools. It was our way of giving back to this great community that we love.
Recently, we hosted an open house at the ranch that included guest speaker Dr. Jason Banta, an introduction to our all-new Legends Ground Beef, and the opportunity to meet our team. It also provided us with the chance to reward three outstanding students with a scholarship that we hope will propel them to do great things in our industry. Our team is proud to present the following recipients of the Legends Scholarship:
