The 2022 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show is asking for the public’s help in selecting their National Anthem Contest winner. The convention draws thousands of cattlemen and women from across the country for education, entertainment, and engagement.
Four finalists have been selected for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA) ninth annual National Anthem Singing Contest. The winner will receive a trip to the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show in Houston to perform the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the Opening General Session on February 1, as well as the evening event on February 3. The four finalists are:
Kassidy Bremer of Redfield, Iowa, is a sixth-generation beef producer who raises seedstock and show steers and participates in the daily decisions of her family’s operation.
Stephanie Nash of Chapel Hill, Tenn., is a fourth-generation dairy farmer and a passionate agriculture advocate who enjoys sharing family famer stories across the country.
Ward Hafenfeld of Weldon, California, is a fifth-generation rancher with a passion for singing and a desire to carry on his family’s heritage in the beef industry.
Terry Ellingson of Dahlen, North Dakota, returned to his family’s beef and dairy farm after graduating from college and now raises registered red and black Simmental.
The public can vote for their favorite singer here once per day per person through November 19, and the winner will be announced November 22, 2021.
The winning singer will receive roundtrip airfare to Houston, hotel room for three nights, convention registration, a meet-and-greet hosted by Norbrook, plus a pair of boots, jeans and a shirt from Roper or Stetson.
In addition to voting for the National Anthem singer, registration is also open for the 2022 Cattle Industry Convention & NCBA Trade Show, which will be “Gone to Texas” in Houston, February 1 through 3.
“Everything is bigger in Texas,” and that holds true for the 2022 Convention. For the first time, there will be five general sessions packed with timely industry updates, inspirational speakers and important information that every producer can use. And the NCBA Trade Show will be the largest ever encompassing 9.7 acres of exhibitors, displays, and educational opportunities all under one roof.
