North Dakota: Spring Roundup series in early June helps cattlemen make sense of markets

BISMARCK, ND – From increasing demand in domestic and global markets, political pressures and low cattle herd inventories, many items impact today’s cattle markets.

These topics and more will take center stage during the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association’s (NDSA) 2011 Spring Roundup series, June 6-10 and 13.

Speakers include Chad Spearman, who is a market analyst for CattleFax, a global leader in beef industry research, analysis and information. Spearman joined the CattleFax team in 2006 and is responsible for the West region cow-calf, stocker and grain market analysis. He was raised on a ranching operation in the San Luis Valley of Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in ag business. Prior to joining CattleFax, Spearman worked for the Grain Division of Cargill, Inc., in Indiana and spent six years in production agriculture on a diversified cow-calf and stocker operation in Colorado. Spearman is a featured speaker at the District 1 Spring Roundup, Thursday, June 9, in New Rockford, ND, and the District 5 Spring Roundup, Friday, June 10, in Killdeer, ND.

With a growing world population, export markets are becoming more and more competitive. NDSA member and North Dakota Beef Commission Chairman Jerry Effertz of Velva will highlight some of the meat industry’s work to expand trading opportunities abroad. Effertz recently returned from a U.S. Meat Export Federation trek to Japan and Taiwan, where he found strong acceptance of U.S. beef by consumers and retailers. Effertz is a featured speaker Monday, June 6, in Linton, ND; Tuesday, June 7, in Washburn, ND; and Monday, June 13, in Almont, ND.

Special guests at each Roundup include NDSA President Jason Schmidt, who will highlight the organization’s most recent activities, and NDSA Executive Vice President Julie Ellingson, who will re-cap the association’s work during the 62nd North Dakota Legislative Session.

Each district meeting features a social and local brand inspectors meeting starting at 5:30 p.m., supper at 6:30 p.m., followed by a short program, and a 50/50 raffle to benefit the North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation (NDSF). Directors will also have tickets available for the NDSF’s third annual Rifle Raffle.
