Our 2020 Minnesota CattleWoman of the Year award winner is Debbie Chute. Debbie has been a member of MN Cattlewomen for over 20 years. She has served as Membership Chair, Secretary, Vice President, President-Elect and most recently as President. She has assisted with the Beef Ambassador Competition.
Debbie took the lead with our CattleWomen’s organization when many of the members were unable to do so. Her leadership propelled MNCW to continue and to stay strong especially this past year with the COVID pandemic.
In her home town, Debbie has been involved with her local Cattlemen’s association helping with the Cattlemen’s Booth at Aitkin’s Commerce Show, with Ag in the Classroom, at their county fair Agricultural Education Building and any other place where help is needed. She was instrumental in getting the Beef Princess program started in their area in the mid 1990’s, and it is still going today. Debbie was a 4-H leader for many years and served on the Aitkin County Extension Committee. Debbie is an Alumni of the MARL Program (Minnesota Agriculture and Rural Leadership). Debbie serves as Aitkin-Carlton County Farm Bureau Secretary/Treasurer.
Debbie may be done with her term as president of MNCW, but she will stay busy as ANCW Region III Director. We are proud to have Debbie represent us at the national level!
Minnesota CattleWomen appreciates the time and dedication this amazing cattlewoman, Debbie Chute, has given to our organization. Congratulations!
