American National CattleWomen elect Jill Ginn president
February 28, 2011
DENVER – Jill Ginn, Granbury, TX, has been elected 60th president of the American National CattleWomen, Inc. (ANCW) during the organization’s 2011 Annual Meeting Feb 1-3 in Denver, CO. The ANCW is a voice for women who support and promote the beef industry.
For 2011, Ginn has chosen the theme “Ridin’ for the Brand” and she encourages CattleWomen to “do all you can to support this great industry with the passion, experience and knowledge we have for cattle production, beef and our way of life. It is up to us to tell our ‘Beef Story’ and to educate the consumer, both young and old, on the benefits of beef in their diet.”
According to Ginn, “In 2011, the National Beef Cook-Off (NBCO) will focus on bringing new nutritious, consumer-friendly recipes to America’s table. We will continue to grow future leaders for this industry through the National Beef Ambassador Program, and we will blaze the trail with the new National Beef Speakers Bureau program. This year, ANCW plans to build on our Legislative Action Network by giving CattleWomen across the nation direction and a voice when it comes to policies being made in D.C. that directly affect our producers and our way of life. We are committed to ‘Ridin’ for the Brand’ and doing our part to carry on the legacy of the Beef Industry.”
Jill Ginn grew up in Hereford, TX, “Beef Capital of the World.” She has had a passion for the beef industry since she was a young girl. Jill graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Agricultural Science. After graduating from Texas A&M, she began her career in the beef industry as a Fat Cattle Buyer for Excel Corporation in the Northern Texas Panhandle. Jill is currently a Territory manager for Novartis Animal Health in Central/East Texas and Louisiana. She works with cow-calf and stocker operators to manage their animal health programs helping them to improve their bottom line.
