My name is Haley Goodall and I am from small town in north western North Dakota. I grew up on a smaller cow-calf operation, but working with larger operations in our area sparked my interest to learn more in the agricultural industry. Throughout high school I judged in numerous contests in 4-H and FFA which lead me to be able to attend Oklahoma State University. Since I have arrived, I have dived into anything that will help me learn more about the beef industry. I am an officer for our Collegiate Cattlewomen’s and Range Club and a member of NCBA, ANCW, NDSA, OCA, and OCW, which keeps me pretty busy! Growing up working alongside my grandfather with our cattle taught me a deep appreciation and passion for the beef industry. It was because of my unwavering desire to learn and be as involved as I could, that I applied for the CBAP contest. Since I have been acknowledged as a collegiate beef advocate, I have been working with our state and collegiate associations in both North Dakota and Oklahoma to set up events between young leaders and professionals. In addition to developing a mentorship program to be used in the state of Oklahoma. I am so grateful for this opportunity and this program has certainly changed my life.
