NM Beef Council Ambassador
Outstanding youth, ages 12 -20, could become the next voice for the NM beef industry by competing in the NM Beef Ambassador Program Contest to be held at the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces, June 8, 2014 in conjunction with the NM Cattle Growers, NM Cow Belles, and the NM Farm & Livestock Bureau Joint Summer Conference. Senior and junior age state winners will then be eligible to compete in the National Beef Ambassador Program (NBAP) Contest slated for September 25-26, 2014 in Denver, Co.
The National Beef Ambassador Program is managed by the American National CattleWomen, Inc. and funded, in part, by America’s Beef Producer Check-Off Program through the Cattleman’s Beef Board. The NBAP strives to assist youth in educating consumers and students about beef nutrition, food safety and stewardship practices of the beef industry. The state level contest is directly sponsored by the NM CowBelle organization, with additional support from the NM Beef Council, the NM Cattle Grower’s, local NM CowBelle women and NM ranchers.
Each of the top five national winners will be awarded $1000 after national requirements are completed, along with a total of $5000 in cash prizes.
