Countryside's own Tara Jo Bina was selected as part of the KLA Young Stockmen's Academy 2023 class. Tara has been with Countryside since 2017, working in Sales and Nutrition Formulation.

 "I am excited to develop relationships with other young producers, learn more about how ag policy decisions are made, and better understand how KLA promotes the best interest of producers across the state. As a beef producer and nutritionist for Countryside Feed working with several different species, I hope to be able to use this experience to better advocate for the future of animal agriculture!" - Bina
