Billings, Montana— Jake Callantine of Belgrade, Mont., was selected by the Montana Angus Association to serve on the Montana Beef Council Board of Directors. He replaces Kathy Creighton-Smith after she served her full nine-year term on the Council. Callantine attended his in-state orientation and his first official meeting in January.

The Montana Beef Council was created by cattlemen in 1954 as a marketing organization for beef.

Callantine serves with his fellow board members that represent nearly all segments of the supply chain with the goal of building beef demand.
“I’m honored to be on the Montana Beef Council representing the ranching community and the Montana Angus Association,” said Callantine. “My goal is to help educate and promote the Checkoff for all beef producers to benefit.”
Jake Callantine is the fourth generation to carry on the ranching tradition on their operation that sits at the foot of the Flathead Pass in the Bridger Mountains. Jake and his family run a cow-calf operation and sell registered and commercial bulls along with some private treaty heifers. Jake also serves as the president of the Montana Angus Association.
