Block and Bridle

The Block and Bridle Club looks great on a resume, helps students become involved, and is a great opportunity to meet lifelong friends that share a passion for Agriculture!

National Block and Bridle club members are college students from all over the United States who are interested in Animal Agriculture.  UW B&B is a registered student organization, involved with the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.  Members do not have to be studying a major within the College of AG to be part of Block and Bridle.  The UW Collegiate Block and Bridle Club is affiliated with the national organization.


  • To promote a higher scholastic standard and a more complete understanding of Animal Science among student members.
  • To promote animal agriculture through development of a program of activities that will supplement students' study of the animal science in colleges and universities.
  • To enhance professionalism of students who will one day be leaders.

If you have a passion for learning more about Agriculture and Animal Science and would like to advocate that passion, contact one of our officers or advisors to join B&B.
