Veteran to serve as intern at Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust
July 3, 2016
Joe Byerly will serve as CSU's intern at the Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust this summer. Prior to attending CSU, Byerly served in the U.S. Army from 2004 – 2013, completing tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Byerly, who grew up surrounded by ranches in Montana, chose to attend CSU due to the university's rangeland ecology program.
Byerly will work out of the Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust's Steamboat Springs office and will assist with managing easements, baseline production and other conservation projects. The internship is a result of the Colorado Cattlemen's Agricultural Land Trust and CSU's Warner College of Natural Resources. Through this partnership, students have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the field of conservation. The internship is supported by Mike and Jan Bohart.
"Having been involved in ranching all my life and knowing the importance of continuing good agricultural practices, supporting ranching livelihoods, and conserving lands, we were pleased to assist with this internship to prepare the next generation of stewards," Mike Bohart said.
