The judges, committee, UT Beef and Forage Center, and UTIA are proud of the students’ work and effort that went into the sixth iteration of the research poster competition. The audience thoroughly enjoyed this type of access to your research. As a committee, the aim was to provide a venue and opportunity for graduate students to gain experience in preparing and presenting scientific information in a scholarly manner on a topic of current importance and interest to agriculture. Your effort did not go unnoticed and continues to contribute to the success of the Center, UTIA, and the land-grant mission.
