Nebraska Cattlemen honor industry leadersTell North Platte what you think

The 2013 Nebraska Cattlemen convention banquet began Dec. 5. Emcee and Executive Vice President of the American Hereford Association Craig Huffhines entertained the audience as he introduced industry leaders and speakers.

The Sand County Foundation 2013 Leopold Conservation award was presented to the Beel family of Johnstown. The Beels were previously announced as the winner on Earth Day at the State Capitol.

Gov. Dave Heineman addressed the audience

Nebraska Cattlemen presented several great awards to individuals who have expressed exceptional dedication to the cattle industry while helping beef producers raise high quality beef.

Kelli Loos of Litchfield was honored as the 2013 Cattlewoman of the Year.

The Rural Radio Network as well as Paul Younes of Younes Hospitality were honored with Industry Service awards.

David and Ann Bruntz of Friend, the Nebraska Cattlemen past president and Nebraska CattleWomen past president, were inducted into the Nebraska Cattlemen Hall of Fame for their role in shaping, promoting and preserving the beef industry.

More than $9,800 was raised for the Cattlemen’s relief fund for producers devastated by winter blizzard Atlas in northwest Nebraska.

The money was raised through a live auction as well as the sale of centerpieces created by the Nebraska CattleWomen.

If you would like to support the relief fund, send donations to Cattlemen’s Relief Fund, PO Box 1125, Chadron, NE 69337.
