Members of the Penn State Collegiate Cattlewomen attended the 2012 Keystone International Livestock Exposition in Harrisburg on October 7 and worked at the Junior Beef Breeding Show. They assisted in lining up classes, handing out awards and clerking the results of the show. A highlight was meeting with the Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture George Greig.

Those attending were:  Olivia Rush, Doylestown; Julie Ivicic, Bellefonte; Amanda Mosier, Cochranton; Katie Livinston, Davidsburg; Megan Keller, Waterfall; and club president Erica Marshall, Greencastle.

Members of the Penn State Block and Bridle Club also attended KILE and assisted with the Collegiate Livestock Judging Contest, which took place on October 6.

Established in 2008 as a student club in the Department of Animal Science (DAS), the club's goal is to promote animal industries, with a special emphasis on the beef industry.
