Wyoming Beef Ambassadors Selected

Wyoming Cattlewomen

The Wyoming CattleWomen announced the selection of the 2013 Wyoming Beef Ambassador Team. Sierra Crisp, Ean Madden and Jordan Runner were chosen from seven candidates during the contest at Casper College on April 13.

Crisp was the overall winner and will represent Wyoming at the National Beef Ambassador Competition in Springdale, Ark., Sept. 27-28, where she will compete for one of five spots on the National Beef Ambassador Team. She attends Casper College studying animal science and is also on the livestock judging team.

Madden, a Senior at Laramie High School, is the FFA president and an honor student. Jordan, a Junior at Laramie High School, has a passion for diesel mechanics.

Leslie Hendry, co-chairman of the Wyoming CattleWomen Beef Ambassador Program, said,

“The CattleWomen are excited that these young folks will help represent our Wyoming beef industry during the next year,”

The Beef Ambassador Program is a national youth advocate program that teaches leadership skills and promotes the beef industry. The national and state programs strive to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers and students about beef nutrition, food safety & stewardship practices of the beef community. During the Wyoming contest participants prepared a written response on the subject of “Meatless Mondays”, took a quiz on beef industry facts and participated in a 10-minute mock interview.

“Participants were very knowledgeable and there was no doubt that FFA and 4-H had taught them to speak intelligently and with confidence,”

The Wyoming Beef Ambassadors will be visible at various events including the Taste of Home Cooking School, Wyoming State Fair, Wyoming Stock Growers Association Cattle Industry Convention, local ag expos, Wyoming Ag In the Classroom Summer Institute and more. They will also conduct classroom education. The Wyoming Beef Ambassador Team is available for speaking engagements. To arrange for a team member to attend a meeting or event, contact Hendry at 307-876-2778 or Owens at 307-437-6863.

Contest judges were Natrona County Commissioner Forest Chadwick, Susan Balfour, the 2012 Wyoming Beef Ambassador Kate Richardson, Natrona County Commissioner and Rancher Robert Hendry, Wyoming Stock Growers Association representative Liz Lauck and Wyoming CattleWomen President Gwen Geis. Former Casper College student Andy Leininger moderated the mock interview.
