The New Mexico Beef Ambassador Program, managed by the New Mexico CowBelle organization, strives to provide an opportunity for youth to educate consumers and students about beef nutrition, food safety and stewardship practices of the beef industry. Beef Ambassadors tell their beef production story to consumers and students through promotion, education, media and the online environment.
The beef ambassador team is chosen at the state contest in Las Cruces. During their year of service, the team will travel throughout the state to engage consumers and students with factual information regarding beef nutrition, food safety and positive stewardship practices through educational programs, presentations, special events and social media.
Usually in April of each year
