Wyoming Collegiate Cattle Association

 

Wyoming Collegiate Cattle Association (WCCA) is a recognized student organization open to all students who are interested in learning more about the cattle industry. From ranch tours to speakers, WCCA is a tremendous opportunity for students to promote professional networking, touring progressive operations, and gaining overall new perspectives in the dynamic cattle industry. As joint members of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association the club works to promote the cattle business and its values throughout the state and university. Not only will the club enhance leadership and communication skills, but it will provide students with fun, hands-on learning experiences not acquired in a classroom setting. Annual activities for the club include, but are not limited to, biweekly meetings, guest speakers, fundraisers, and club trips.
