2017 Beef Ambassador Team: MeKenzie and Madisen Jolliff. Not Pictured is Brian Searson.
Kicking off the annual beef banquet was the introduction of the 2017 Beef Ambassador Team which consists of MeKenzie Jolliff, Madisen Jolliff, and Brian Searson. A team is chosen rather than a single queen in an effort to include more exhibitors, and expand opportunities and event coverage.
The team aims to grow the beef industry as a whole and get people involved in the production of beef cattle. I had the chance to talk briefly with both Madisen and MeKenzie.
Scholarship Recipients: Taylor Cronley and Cam Deckling. Not Pictured are NIcole Southerland,
Molly Wilson, and Holly Wilson.
