Talon Youth Education Learning Program Internship Program Summer 2018

Cam Cooper’s legacy lives on through Talon Youth Education Learning Program.


'Cam' Cooper Talon internship becomes reality

Camron “Cam” Cooper of Talon Ranch loved the land and Angus cattle. She believed in educating young people and promoting the future of the beef industry. Cam believed that if she didn’t help young people, she wouldn’t have a legacy, so she set up the Angus/Talon Youth Education Learning Program Endowment Fund in 2009, designed to be a holistic educational experience for students.


Cam’s legacy will live on through this internship program pairing motivated Angus youth with working registered-Angus breeders/ranches to give youth valuable education and work experience during the summer months.


The internship will begin in mid-May and conclude mid-August, with some variation in the starting and ending dates considering the availability of the student and host Angus breeder.
