On Jan. 27, a packed house estimated in excess of 200 people was on hand at the Guthrie County Fairgrounds for the annual Guthrie County Cattlemen’s Banquet. Attendees enjoyed a meal catered by Café on the Hill. Area legislators and other elected officials were thanked for attending.
One of the highlights of the banquet is the annual crowning of Guthrie County’s Beef Queen and Beef Princess. 2023 Beef Queen Hayden Coffman and 2023 Beef Princess Reagan Carney told of their appreciation for the opportunity to serve in their roles for the past year. They then passed their crowns on to 2024 Beef Queen Shay Lemke and 2024 Beef Princess Paige Van Meter.
