Beef ambassadors

PROVIDERS: Two Gothenburg residents involved with beef were chosen by the Dawson County Cattlemen as beef ambassadors since both have been an important part of agriculture in the county. They are Steve Platter (left), Tyson carcass sales manager, and Britt Anderson, Dawson Co. Farm Bureau president. They received plaques at the organization’s Feb. 6 banquet. In 2015, the ambassadors helped the cattlemen provide beef for 4,800 students in Dawson County schools during “Beef Month” in May, among other things.
