AFA TO HOST STUDENTS ON TOUR OF KC'S ANIMAL HEALTH CORRIDOR
Source: Kansas City Agribusiness Council reports:

Agriculture Future of America will introduce 75 student leaders to Kansas City's Animal Health Corridor with a tour of various companies that makeup the world's largest concentration of companies focused on animal health. Participating students, chosen from across the nation through a competitive selection process, will learn about the Corridor activities and opportunities through a series of tours, panel discussions, and professional development training.

AFA will cap the event with a dinner April 8, 2013 that includes student presentations and summaries of their experiences, observations and insights obtained during the tour. A special presentation from Forrest L. Roberts, National Cattlemen's Beef Association CEO, will highlight the evening.

Roberts has extensive animal industry experience, holding marketing and sales positions with animal health companies such as Pfizer and Elanco.

He has served on NCBA's executive committee, board of directors, allied industry council and long-range planning committee. But Roberts gained his original animal industry experience on his family's diversified livestock operation in Uvalde, Texas.

Industry representatives are invited to join students for dinner and the evening presentation. The event will take place in the American Royal Ambassador Room at 1701 American Royal Court, Kansas City, Missouri. The reception begins at 5:30 p.m. with dinner following at 6 p.m. For more information or to register for the dinner at $25/person please visit www.agfuture.org/animalhealth [7].

Companies and organizations are invited to host the reception and dinner for program participants. Sponsorship involves a donation to AFA to cover meal and program costs.
