Hello everybody! My name is Kenadee Barnitz, and I am serving as the 2018 Missouri Beef Queen. I am from Lake Spring, Missouri and a member of the Dent/ Phelps Cattlemen’s Association. I live on a cow/calf operation raising mostly crossbred calves. We also do our own backgrounding and operate a custom feed store. I am actively involved with the Missouri Junior Cattlemen’s Association and currently serve as a board member. I’m a 2018 graduate of Rolla High School where I was in involved with National Honors Society, 4-H and FBLA, where I served as president.
