The American Gelbvieh Association (AGA) announces the hiring of Kim Rounds, Grass Valley, California, as an association intern. Rounds will be assisting members in recording of data, DNA testing, membership questions, bull customer assistance and any other aspects of AGA operations.
Rounds grew up on her family’s ranch in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, where they raised commercial cattle and she showed her own string of club calves. She previously served as the California representative on the National Beef Ambassador team, traveling around the country promotion beef with the American National CattleWomen.
Rounds graduated from Colorado State University (CSU) in May of 2015 with a degree in animal and equine sciences. During her time at CSU Kim was very involved with many aspects of CSU and the College of Agricultural Sciences. She served as the vice president of the Versatility Ranch Horse Team, teaching assistant for the Legends of Ranching Sale and training program, ag ambassador, chair on the board of student organization funding as well as co-chair for the event and promotions committee for the CSU Seedstock Merchandising Team.
“I am excited to learn more about the advancements Gelbvieh is making in both data collection and producer services,” Rounds said.
“In the last 18 months the AGA has been fortunate in sourcing the most talented staff available. The educational background in animal and equine sciences that Kim possesses will serve her well in participating as a vital team member as an intern at the AGA. The staff in place will help further her education in the beef business while Kim provides service to the AGA membership and customer base,” said Myron Edelman, AGA executive director.
Rounds will be with the association throughout the spring and can be reached at the AGA office at 303-465-2333 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
