“Sharing experiences, receiving feedback from your industry peers and focusing on the development of the next generation is imperative for any business to succeed, agriculturally based or otherwise,” said Beth Burns, TNCW president. “A group for ladies within the cattle industry, and within TN, provides not just fellowship but the opportunity to sharpen our skills, collectively develop an industry voice, and ensure strong foundations within our youth for a successful future.”
