Bio Brief

Angie Denton has three passions — her kids, Hereford cattle and Kansas State University. Her personal and career path has allowed her to balance the three while also serving as a leader in the livestock publications industry.

A third-generation Hereford breeder from Blue Rapids, Kan., Denton attended Kansas State University where she studied Ag Journalism and Animal Sciences and Industry. While at K-State, she attended her first LPC convention in 1994 and was named the 1995 LPC Forrest Bassford Student Award winner.

After interning with the Angus Journal, Denton joined the staff, working for 10 years from 1995 to 2004. She accepted the position of Hereford World Editor in 2004. Soon after, she added Director of Communications to her job description. Late in 2014 her job title changed once again, when editorial duties and Communications Director were made stand-alone jobs. Dynamic times in the expanding breed prompted rearranging of job duties within the organization.

The opportunity to move to the Hereford World in 2004 was “going home,” both figuratively and physically. Moving back to her family ranch, Springhill Herefords, she worked out of her home office.

A faithful K-State graduate, Denton joined the ASI department as Communications Coordinator in April 2016. At K-State she leads the marketing and communications efforts for the ASI Department. Including managing the website, all social media channels and press releases for the department. She also is part of the recruitment team and enjoys planning the annual K-State ASI Family & Friends Reunion and Stockmen’s Dinner.

Denton served on the Livestock Publications Council board from 2005 to 2017 and is also past president of the organization. She has been recognized with the LPC Ed Bible Distinguished Service Award in 2003 and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Excellence in Communications and Public Relations award in 2012.

She currently serves as chairman of the United Methodist Church trustees and is a Kansas Junior Hereford Association advisor. She served as a 4-H Community Leader for 15 years. Her favorite time is spent in the barn with her sons, fourth generation Hereford breeders.

Angie and her husband, John, have two children — Wes and Dustin.
