Hello everyone! My name is Samantha Walker and I have the pleasure to be working with ASAS this summer as one of their interns.
Agriculture has always been something I have had a tremendous passion for, especially the livestock side of things.
Growing up, my family traveled the Midwest showing Simmental cattle, leaving me with a soft spot for the beef industry. However, this in no way takes away from the respect and admiration I have for the other species.

This is the second year for the ASAS YouTube Video Competition! Any member of ASAS can enter the competition, but student members may want to pay extra attention. Not only will video competition winners receive prizes (first place = $1,250) they will also be recognized at the ASAS National Award Program this summer.
Every year at the awards program, ASAS members gather with fellows and veteran scientists to honor great science and industry contributions. These are the leaders in their fields.
By entering the ASAS YouTube Video Competition, you could be a part of that legacy. The winning video will be shown during the ceremony, and information about the winners will be posted on the ASAS website and in the ASAS newsletter, Taking Stock (and the BULLetin, of course). If you want to publicize your research and promote animal agriculture, the video competition is a great place to do it.
The deadline is May 22, 2013

Generally the accepted manner of dress for attending conferences is considered business casual; however, during interviews and at professional meetings, a more professional manner of dress is appropriate. Check out my tips below.
Tips for Dressing for Success as an Animal Scientist:
- Use good hygiene – Seriously! Continue reading
