The Sandhills Cattle Association is now accepting applications for its 2015 Scholarship Program. Each year the Association awards five $1,000 scholarships to children of Sandhills Cattle Association members. Students must either be graduating from high school in the spring of 2015 or be enrolled in college or vo-tech school. The same application form can also be used to apply for the Howard Wright Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship is in the amount of $500. The applicants must complete the application form and submit it to the Sandhills Cattle Association office on or before February 1, 2015.
Each year, the Sandhills Cattle Association gathers information from its members about wages paid to ranch hands. We are in the process of conducting the Ranch Hand Wage Survey for 2014 now. Members can click on the link, complete the survey and return it to the office by December 15. We will compile the information submitted and publish a summary in the Sandhills Cattle News after January 1. There will also be a detailed report available upon request.
