Red Angus Welcomes Dylan Laverell as Summer Marketing Intern
DENVER — Dylan Laverell, Laramie, Wyoming, will be serving the Red Angus Association of America as the summer intern as part of the commercial marketing team. He will be assisting with herd visits and conducting field audits as required for the breed’s Feeder Calf Certification Program.
“We are pleased to have Dylan as an intern with Red Angus. His livestock knowledge and people skills make him a natural fit for this internship, where he will visit commercial ranches actively utilizing Red Angus value-added programs,” said Harold Bertz, RAAA commercial marketing director.
Laverell grew up involved in projects and leadership within 4-H and FFA. Additionally, he was active on his county livestock judging team and judged at various national contests.

He is currently a junior at the University of Wyoming, majoring in animal science and has been a member of the wool and meat animal evaluation teams. Additionally, he serves as an undergraduate teaching assistant, coaches the wool judging team and is a member of both the Wyoming Collegiate Cattlemen and Collegiate Woolgrowers clubs. After graduation, he plans to attend graduate school to study ruminant nutrition to prepare him for a career as an Extension specialist.
“I look forward to meeting Red Angus producers in my area and working with Red Angus staff, all while having a great summer internship!” said Laverell.
Laverell will be responsible for scheduling audits for the Feeder Calf Certification Program to satisfy USDA requirements for participating ranches. He will be primarily calling on farmers, ranchers and feedlots throughout Wyoming, Montana and Colorado, as well as assisting the Red Angus marketing team with other commercial marketing activities as needed.
