Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) is proud to announce that Rylee Barber will serve as their new Youth and Membership Programs Coordinator. Her duties include managing the Junior Beefmaster Breeders Association (JBBA) program and working the BBU membership on a daily basis.
“I am passionate about the livestock industry and I am excited to be joining the Beefmaster family,” said Barber.
Barber is originally from the Texas Panhandle, where she grew up in the small town of Channing, Texas and was raised on a purebred Hereford seedstock operation. Rylee’s family has lived in Channing and raised Herefords there since 1904. Barber grew up through the National Junior Hereford Association and currently serves as the Vice Chairman on the junior board.
Barber graduated from Texas A&M University with her Bachelors in Agricultural Communications and Journalism in December 2019. While attending school, Barber was involved in several clubs and served as the co-manager of the Saddle and Sirloin Futurity Show. She also completed internships with the American Maine-Anjou Association, Superior Livestock Productions, and several major shows in Texas.
“Rylee has a solid cattle background and she knows what it takes to be a leader,” says BBU Executive Vice President Collin Osbourn. “Her knowledge of the cattle industry will be valuable to JBBA and BBU. She will bring great energy to the youth program, serve as a great role model for our Junior members, and will be dedicated to our Beefmaster breeders in every capacity.
