AUBURN'S MULVANEY NAMED 2013 NATIONAL BEEF AMBASSADOR
Chandler Mulvaney of Lee County was named one of five new Beef Ambassadors at the annual National Beef Ambassador Competition, Sept. 28-30, in Sacramento, Calif. He competed against 21 other contestants from across the country.
Mulvaney, a graduate of Beauregard High School in Auburn, said he looks forward to educating consumers in this role.
“Through cattle shows and state conventions, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with my peers and get more involved in the beef industry,” Mulvaney said. “I look forward to sharing my experiences with others as a National Beef Ambassador.”
Ambassadors educate consumers on beef industry messages including nutrition, animal welfare, environmental issues and production. Other ambassadors chosen for the 2013 team include Erin Morrison of Minnesota, Katie Stroud of California, Emma Jumper of Arkansas and Jacquelyn Brown of Oregon.
The 2013 National Beef Ambassadors received $5,000 in cash prizes sponsored by Farm Credit. Five scholarships totalling $5,000 were given by the American National CattleWomen Foundation, Inc., and Monsanto.
The National Beef Ambassador Program (NBAP) is funded in part by the Beef Checkoff Program.
