The word ‘sustainability’ can mean different things to different people. In agriculture, sustainability has taken center stage when it comes to how farmers and ranchers plan to ensure the future of their livelihoods. Commodity organizations are increasingly tasked with understanding how the crops they represent can fit into the sustainability conversation.

The HLSR helps 156 undergraduate students and eight graduate students in the Davis College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Out of the 156 undergraduate students, 45 of those students have been awarded $35,988 from the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Endowed Scholarship, which was established in 1978.
