Welcome, from our outfit
Jeff Pettit, Sebree, Kentucky, is proud to announce his candidacy for the Red Angus Association of America board of directors. Jeff brings a unique combination of grassroots rural values, practical beef production, and business management experience to the table and looks forward to the opportunity to serve the association.
For Jeff, everything is about family. He and his wife Michelle own and operate Noash Construction, Inc. & Diamond P Cattle Company, both businesses headquartered in rural Kentucky.
Noash Construction Inc. specializes in cell phone and communication tower installation and maintenance. This company has 11 full time employees. Nationwide brands like Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Boardwalk Pipelines, and Atmos Energy are all Noash clients, along with various state police, public service agencies and municipalities throughout the US.
Jeff's true passion is in rural America. He and his family have raised Red Angus and Red SimAngus for more than 15 years through Diamond P Cattle Co., which also has a "Farm fresh" beef brand. Diamond P's primary focus is raising bulls for the commercial cattle producer and purebred replacement females. They like cattle to be sound, efficient, productive and phenotypically correct in their confirmation.
Jeff and Michelle have two children: Ashley and Nolan. Ashley is married with two daughters: Halle and Makenzie, who are already showing a love of livestock. Ashley is involved both in Noash Construction and Diamond P Cattle. Nolan is a senior at Eastern Kentucky University where he is studying Public Relations/ Communications with a minor in Ag. Business and Political Science. The Pettit children competed at a national level showing lambs and cattle, which provided a great family hobby and character building experience.
Jeff believes in local, state and national civic service. He has served the past six years as chairman of the Webster County Board of Education. As a member of the Kentucky Cattlemen's Association, Jeff has served on the state board of directors, Region 1 Vice President, and Webster County president. He is also a member of the Webster County Farm Bureau board, and the Kentucky Beef Network Beef Solutions board. He is a board member of the Kentucky-Tennessee Red Angus Association, vice president of the Southeastern Red Angus Association, and served two years on the national Red Angus promotions committee. He currently serves as a member of the RAAA Constitution and By-laws Committee, and represented Kentucky at the 2017 NCBA Young Cattlemen's Conference.
Jeff and his family attend church at Mt Gilead General Baptist in Slaughters, Kentucky and "Thank God" daily for the many blessings in their life. "God created each of us to serve one another," Jeff said. "I hope I can serve each of my fellow Red Angus members as their representative on the RAAA Board of Directors."
Jeff welcomes the opportunity to discuss his candidacy with any RAAA members. Please feel free to call 270-836-2963 or email [email protected]
