The national Block and Bridle Club emblem is pictured on the left. The top portion of the 'B' features a meat block and cleaver, representing the material aspects of our life and our profession. The lower portion of the 'B' contains a bridle to symbolize the behavior of Block and Bridle Club members, the control over ourselves that we try to maintain, the mannerisms and respect we show towards others and the manner in which we treat our livestock.
The straight perpendicular lines of the 'B' demonstrate character, sincerity and a moral life, which are all attributes that are asked of members of the Block and Bridle Club. The curved lines of the 'B' embody social pleasure, mental energy and the determination of Block and Bridle Club members. Our colors are royal purple and navy blue while our flower is a lilac.
A National Organization
The University of Connecticut Block and Bridle Club is a part of a national organization dedicated to expanding students' knowledge of the animal science industry and the importance of animal agriculture. Additionally, members work closely with other students, faculty and the public in order to increase awareness of the field through fundraising events, workshops and livestock competitions. If you're interested in learning more about our club, you can contact any of our officers. We would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
