Slaymaker joins Roundup team
A new face joins the Wyoming Livestock Roundup team as Madi Slaymaker, a Casper native, began her work as an editor this week.
Madi is a recent high school graduate and has worked to own and operate a photography business, which specializes in western photography. She started this business over three years ago.
Madi grew up on the Eastgate Ranch east of Casper. While there, she helped with all facets of cattle work, including gathering cows and brandings throughout the years. Her favorite part of living on the ranch was feeding bum calves.
Madi was also active in 4-H growing up. She started 4-H when she turned eight, and she has raised several crossbred steers over the years.
Madi started her own cattle breeding program, resulting in the Overall Reserve Champion Breeding Heifer at the Natrona County Breeding Beef Show. She is hoping to offer show calves to 4-H members in the future.
Madi recently took a class at Casper College to become an artificial insemination (AI) technician, so she can further her breeding program.
“I remember reading the Wyoming Livestock Roundup in the shop at the ranch while waiting for my dad,” Madi said. “I am excited to be working for the Roundup, and I can’t wait to learn more regarding the agriculture industry and share the information with readers.”
“We are excited and pleased Madi has joined the Roundup team,” said Wyoming Livestock Roundup Publisher Dennis Sun. “We look forward to working with her and continuing to share quality articles our readers expect.”
