NE Cattlemen fill several positions in NCBA
LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska was well represented during the Cattle Industry Convention and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Trade Show held in San Diego, California last week. More than 6,700 folks gathered under the sunshine to attend this year’s convention. There was much to do during the days in San Diego from engaging in grassroots policy process, hearing from industry experts and browsing the vast trade show.
“After gathering together with producers from around the country I’ve realized that we may have different genetics, resources, and concerns, but we all have a passion for the cattle business and work hard to do our best for our livestock, land, consumers and families,” Said NC President Barb Cooksley. “NCBA meetings always reinforce the fact, that we need the staff in Washington DC every day representing our interests and concerns to our elected officials. With them doing their job, I can do mine at home!”
