Happy Thanksgiving from the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture!

We are thankful for the bounty of agriculture, education, families, friends and the generosity of our neighbors in Frontier County.

Our college is grateful for the kind, respectful and caring individuals who surround us each day. You can imagine that students who are far from home, in particular, and who do not get a chance to return home very often certainly miss their close friends and loved ones.

CURTIS, Neb. – A national beef industry slogan – “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” could have been the theme last week for students and faculty at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture.

The NCTA Aggies who attended a four-state Range Beef Cow Symposium in Mitchell, Nebraska, definitely consumed their share of beef at the dining table and from educational sessions.

Eight animal science students from NCTA joined their Feeds and Feeding instructor Tasha King for the 2 ½ -day symposium.

Morgan Wagner isn’t afraid of hard work or getting her hands dirty.

For her summer job, the animal science major at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis fed livestock, milked dairy cows, and did chores with hogs, goats and chickens.

However, since July, she’s spent 10 to 15 hours a week lending a hand as a student worker in the dean’s office, carrying a full semester of courses, and working part-time at an assisted living residence in the community.
