Texas A&M student develops video game for working cattle

For students studying animal science, interactive gaming can now help introduce concepts of working with cattle, before they’ve even stepped foot in a pen or pasture. 

Nicholas Free, animal science senior at Texas A&M University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences didn’t grow up handling cattle, but he created a simulation that may help others build and expand their cattle-working skills.

Maroon & White Watch Party

We’re kicking off our Spring/Summer 2019 calendar with this year’s edition of Texas A&M Football’s Maroon & White Game, is set for a 2 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday, April 13 at Kyle Field. The annual game will be televised nationally on the SEC Network.

Shiner will be flowing, with drink specials and snacks aplenty. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for sunshine on my face and energy in my veins that only Aggie Football can sustain.

There will also be a silent auction and raffle for concert tickets to shows like Thomas Rhett, and Shakey Graves, and a Shiner grill.

This isn’t just for football! It’ll also be a great time to meet new Ags to the area, and reconnect with those people you haven’t seen since you started your winter hibernation. Much like winter’s snow, your heart can thaw out and get ready for a GREAT next 6 months.

Corps Values: Aggie Spotlight with Will McCauley ’06

Picture it: Aggieland, 2006. Jersey Shore is all the rage on MTV, Facebook poke wars are a thing, Drake just dropped “Thank Me Later”, ‘Party in the USA’ and ‘Single Ladies’ were your fave songs, you watched YouTube videos like ‘Old Gregg’ and ‘David after Dentist’ more times than you can count on your fingers and toes, and pictures were taken on new ‘digital’ handheld cameras.

Insert Will McCauley, President of DC Aggies (NCTAMC), vet for exotic animals, owner of a pet pig, and all-around hometown hero. Will was a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets (and will give an intimate account of his experiences of being a CT, or ‘Corps Turd’), an Animal Science Major (remember THAT building??), knows what it takes to date the powerful women of DC, and a lover of a good time with good people. He’s given the most in-depth interview to date, and I promise it’s worth EVERY moment of the 10 minutes it’ll take to read.
