Hi there! My name is Madison Pollart and I am very excited to be the communications intern for the Wyoming Stock Growers Association this summer! I hail from Snyder, Colorado, where I was raised on my family’s small cow/calf operation. I am a graduate of Prairie High School in New Raymer, Colorado, where I was an active member of the school through numerous athletics teams and organizations. I served as president of the prominent New Raymer FFA chapter, where I also competed in various events. It was here that I began to pursue my passion in advocating for the agriculture industry.
I am heading into my senior year at the University of Wyoming, where I am earning my bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications and minor in public relations. In my time at UW, I have been a member of UW Women’s Club Volleyball, UW Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers and I am currently serving as treasurer for the Wyoming Collegiate Cattle Association—an extension of WSGA.
I have a deep love for the cattle industry and passion for the agriculture industry overall. I enjoy spending time working both on my family’s ranch and neighboring operations. After graduation, I look forward to a career that will allow me to advocate on behalf of the cattle industry and ranchers everywhere. I plan to continue being involved in my family’s ranch and hope to have an operation of my own one day. As the sixth generation of my family to work in production agriculture, I am dedicated to continuing my family’s tradition of being good stewards of the land and the livestock we raise on it.
This summer, I will be taking the reins of WSGA’s social media outlets–including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter–while also contributing to its websites! I also look forward to working with WSGA on various projects this summer, including the Environmental Stewardship Award and the Wyoming Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show.
I cannot wait to get out into the great state of Wyoming to meet and work with some of the exceptional ranchers that help keep this state and our country running strong. I am sure that a summer full of learning and adventure awaits me…and I am so excited to get started!
