A note from Britt.

Hello! I am, Britty, President and founding member of LCCW. My husband Morgan and I live southwest of Sterling with our boys Waker Morgan (6) and Hudson Allen (2). I am also a bonus mom to a beautiful teenage girl named Paige. My family owns and operates a small feedyard in Merino, where we feed cattle from all over the country. I handle all of the feedyards risk management. We also run about 750 yearlings in the summer on grass. The boys and I very much enjoy checking the cattle on grass! It is about favorite thing to do in the summer. Our time

is coming when we chase our boys around doing all the activities that boys do, but until then we enjoy spending time with friends, traveling to cattle sales, going to Rockies games, and hanging out with our families. I was born on a ranch in the middle of nowhere in Colorado, and I have always felt that the love I have for cattle and the cattle industry was bred in me.....I believe the love and passion I have cannot be taught....it is just inside you. To get up and do what we do everyday, you have to absolutely love it, it is not just a job for us, it’s a way of life, it is what we want our children to take over and love. The long nights, the early mornings, the cold winters, the long stretches without any rain, all of this is not for the faint of heart but here we all still are doing it everyday and we do it for the love of our country and the people in it. I am proud to call Colorado my home. And our Colorado ranchers and farmers are the best stewards of the land, we are proud of the way we treat and take care for our animals, we love feeding the world and providing a sustainable food source because we want there to something left here for our children, our grandchildren and their children and their grandchildren. We are not the problem we are the solution. I am going to leave you with a quote from one of my favorite movies....McLintock “Everybody works for somebody. Me, I work for everybody in these United States that steps into a butcher's shop for a T-bone steak” I am so excited to have the opportunity to be apart of this amazing group of women!

VICE PRESIDENT

Hi! I’m Niki, VP and founding member of LCCW. My husband Bret and I live North of Sterling with our daughters Grace (15) and Lyla (12). We own and operate a cow/calf operation and raise oats, rye, millet and alfalfa among other crops. We also have a small custom feeding operation where we are proud to offer beef that is born, raised, fed and harvested right here in the great state of Colorado. When we aren’t chasing our girls around to basketball, livestock judging or 4H activities; we enjoy spending time at the lake with friends, traveling to bull sales and hanging out with our families. As a native Coloradan I’ve always been proud to call this great state home. I’m passionate about the beef industry because I believe the well-being of animals, feeding the world and providing a sustainable food source are important things to provide for the generations that come after me. We can all be a part of the solution to preserving our Colorado agriculture roots by working together to form lines of communication, listening to each other and education. I’m excited to be a part of this wonderful group of #agvocates!

DEZARAE JOHNSON

SECRETARY

Hi my name is Dezarae Johnson I am your newly elected secretary. My husband Eric and I live south east of Sterling on a small farm with our three kids, our son Harper (12) our daughter Aly (10) & our son Mason (. I was born in Greeley Colorado but grew up in Nebraska where I attended Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture and took classes in Ag Production with an emphasis in Feedlot Management. My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2007 when he returned from combat operations in Iraq. His career both before and after the military, in Ag Retail is what brought us to CO. We have always been passionate about agriculture especially cattle, so in 2015 when we got the chance to buy a house on 3 acres with the potential to grow we were happy to pounce on it. Slowly over the last 6 years we have expanded and grown into a commercial cow/calf herd with a custom hay business. Besides loving cattle and being an “agvocate” I work on the farm, manage the cattle, chase the kids around to every event and substitute at my kids school when I can. Being a part of this group has been an enlightening and learning experience for me. I have truly enjoyed getting to know all of these women. I look forward to serving this club the best I can, and continuing to learn from all these amazing woman.

LACEY SEXTON

TREASURER

Hello,

My name is Lacey Sexton and I am the newly elected treasurer for the Logan County Cattlewomen.

I currently live just north of Sterling with my husband JD, 9 year old daughter Laramie and 4 year old son Logan. Our family has a small flock of show sheep aside from our day jobs as the Logan County livestock extension agent and Commercial insurance consultant.

Being born and raised on the family cattle and sheep ranch in Northwest Colorado I have gained a great passion and appreciation for livestock and the industry as a whole and am grateful I can provide a small bit of the experience with my children through our sheep operation. I am very excited to work with fellow agriculturalist to help promote the beef industry and educate people about agriculture.

Welcome to the LCCW team, we are so excited to work with you!

A note from Chrissy:

My husband Grant and I live in Proctor with our 2 children Cutter (age 9) and Kirby (5). Grant is self-employed making bits and spurs and I work in Sidney NE working for an insurance agency that specializes in Crop Insurance. I enjoy roping and chasing after my kids to all their activities in my spare time.

While we don’t live on a huge cattle ranch, we do have 5 cows and some horses on our small acreage. I’m very passionate about the beef industry and agriculture as a whole. It has created a great lifestyle for myself and my husband and now for our kids. No better way of learning all of life’s lessons than with animals. I feel like educating people about our industry is our responsibility to keep it alive for the next generation. I definitely want to make sure I am doing my part!
