The California Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is please to welcome Morgan Lyman to the staff as our administrative assistant.
Morgan was raised in the foothills of Amador County where her family grows wine grapes and beef cattle. She grew up with a passion for agriculture, but fell in love at a young age with the cattle side of the industry.
She joins the CCA team having just graduated from Oregon State University (OSU) with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and an emphasis in Leadership. During her time at OSU, Morgan took advantage of opportunities to learn more about the beef industry by interning with the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association and gaining leadership skills through clubs such as Steer-A-Year. Morgan also worked for the beef unit on campus which held many research trials that provided learning opportunities for her to expand her knowledge of the industry.
Morgan responsibilities include initial telephone and personal contact with CCA members and the public. She also is responsible for coordinating day-to-day office operations and assisting with meeting and event planning, preparation and scheduling.
