After 34 years with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, the past four as CEO, Kendal Frazier announced his plans for retirement Tuesday.
Frazier’s career began as a farm broadcaster in Kansas, where he also served as director of communications for the Kansas Livestock Association, before moving to Denver, Colorado, to join the staff of the National Cattlemen’s Association, the predecessor organization to NCBA. Frazer says it “has been an honor to serve the men and women who make their living in the cattle business,” adding he is confident that he is “leaving NCBA in a good place.”
During his tenure, the organization says his commitment to improving domestic and international demand for beef has been unwavering. Likewise, he has dedicated significant resources to ensuring beef producers continue to enjoy the freedom to operate by ensuring member’s priorities in Washington, D.C., remain a core focus for the association.
NCBA will begin the search process to select a new CEO immediately, and Frazier will remain in place to assist with the transition process, until December 31, 2019.
