President

Tressa Lawrence was born and raised in Buffalo Wyoming on her family's ranch just east of town, where she runs some of her own cattle.

She owns a yoga business, while also pursuing her Masters Degree in Agriculture Communications from Texas Tech University. She has been a member of the JCCW for 5 years, and was the Wyoming Beef Ambassador for the Wyoming Cattle Women's Association in high school.

 

When asked what her favorite aspect of agriculture is, she responded;

"I love the community that the agriculture industry cultivates. We genuinely care about our neighbors and want them to succeed. The care and compassion that is shown to others is also reflected in the products we produce, whether it's livestock, crops, or fibers. High quality people producing high quality food and fiber to feed and clothe the world!

Treasurer

Linda Foss grew up on a ranch outside of Hazard, Nebraska, about 60 miles north of Kearney. Her family moved to Buffalo when she was 5 years old.

 

She married her husband Joe, originally from Sheridan, in 1977, and joined Johnson County Cowbelle's in '78. After retiring from the U.S. Postal Service, she spends her days working on the family ranch north of Buffalo. 

Her favorite part of agriculture is getting the opportunity to share it with her family. She has 2 kids and 5 grandkids in Buffalo, who she enjoys sharing the Foss ranching traditions with.

Vice President

Emily Nielsen is a Wyoming native born and raised in Lander. Although she has no cattle of her own (yet) she grew up helping on her brothers cattle operations in Thermopolis as well as the operations of many friends and family.

Emily attended Casper College earning her AS in both Ag Business and Animal Science before moving to the University of Wyoming to earn her BA in Ag Business with a focus on Livestock Business Management. Growing up in 4-H and FFA she found her passion for agriculture early on in life and her love of all things cattle.

Emily and her husband Carter have lived in Buffalo since 2017 and are avid hunters and outdoorsmen. They welcomed their daughter Maeley in March of 2023.

Her favorite part about agriculture is;  "It's everywhere, even when you don't realize it. I love being able to talk to people about all things ag and to educate non-agriculturists about why it is so important to local communities and the world. Especially in this day and age. Plus I just stinkin' love cows!"
