The 2020 Donors for the Memorial Heifer Scholarship are: Water's Edge Farm, Running Springs Cattle Company, Williams Brothers Simmental, and Martin Farms.
The Wlm. Kenneth Ambrose Memorial Heifer Scholarship is a program designed to foster an opportunity for growth and development of youth interested in agriculture, to encourage youth involvement in the beef cattle project, and to give industry youth an opportunity to express creative ideas.
Each 2020 donor will award one $1,500 voucher toward the purchase of a weaned, registered Simmental, SimAngus, or Angus heifer calf at the 2020 Seedstock Connection Production Sale on September 26, 2020 to be held in Franklin, Tennessee. Each donor will have available at least one animal valued at $1,500.
