The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Tuesday named Kendal Frazier as its new chief executive officer. NCBA President Tracy Brunner made the announcement, saying he is confident that the nation’s oldest and largest cattle industry association is in good hands. Frazier was serving as the interim CEO before the announcement, a post he held since June of last year. Frazier said he is honored and excited for the opportunity to serve as CEO, adding that his priorities as CEO will be working with NCBA stakeholders to oppose “the continued assault by the government on private property rights,” while working to expand and open markets around the world for U.S. beef.
Frazier was raised on a cattle and grain operation in south-central Kansas. He is a graduate of Kansas State University and began his career as a farm broadcaster before joining the staff at Kansas Livestock Association as director of communications. He joined the National Cattlemen’s Association staff in 1985.
