|Congratulations to Wyoming's Gwen Geis, American National CattleWomen's newly elected President!|
Wyoming CattleWomen is a group of dedicated individuals who believe that the livestock industry is of basic importance to world existence. Our objective is to develop educational awareness about BEEF and to promote a better understanding of the various roles the beef industry plays in the environment and the national economy.
Wyoming CattleWomen bring the best of volunteerism to the beef industry. We are active in education, beef promotion and industry issues. We are affiliated with the American National CattleWomen and support a number of their national projects. Wyoming CattleWomen work closely with the Wyoming Beef Council, WY Stock Growers Association, Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom as well as local Cow-Belle/CattleWomen organizations.
Organized on June 6, 1940 as Wyoming's Cow-Belles, the original group was headed by Charlotte Snodgrass and consisted of ladies who wanted to do more for the livestock industry. In 1992 our name changed to Wyoming CattleWomen, Inc. to reflect the more professional organization we have become. The primary goal of Wyoming CattleWomen has not changed throughout the years -- to maintain and increase the demand for beef and to promote a positive image of our industry.
