The Beef Empire Days board of directors are lead by 13 board members and 4 ex-officio members.
Throughout the years, the original goals have remained, including: advancement in the production and quality of beef, improvement of communications and continued education and promotion of beef. These are the goals that guide the board of directors and the many vounteers who work diligently to organize the events that make up Beef Empire Days.
This year there are nearly 30 events geared to the cattle feeding industry, the arts and humanities, and the athletes of the High Plains area. Each of these events is made possible by a dedicated chairman or chairwoman and one or more financial sponsors.
This celebration also could not happen without the hundreds of dedicated volunteers who come together each and every year to organize, promote and host the fabulous events that make up the Beef Empire Days celebration. If you have an interest in a particular event or are interested in becoming a Beef Empire Days volunteer please contact the event coordinator of the Beef Empire Days office.There are over 190 financial partners who act as sponsors of every aspect of Beef Empire Days. Without the contributions of the many local and national sponsors the celebration could not survive. We always welcome new sponsors and would be happy to visit with you in more detail about the multitude of sponsorship opportunities.The impact that the beef industry has had on Southwest Kansas and the entire High Plains area is substantial and we are extremely gratified to be involved in such an important part of agriculture and the area.
Beef Empire Days, Inc. was formed in 1967 to promote and educate people on the merits of beef and the cattle feeding industry. There are twelve voting board members and two ex-officio board members. Four members are elected or re-elected annually. These volunteers are selected from the ranks of the sponsors and they meet monthly to plan and direct the annual celebration.
