Interested in helping shape the beef checkoff? Now is your chance to get involved. The USDA Agriculture Marketing Service is seeking nominees for the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board now through June 6, with a seat opening for the Southwest Unit which includes Nevada. The Board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985 and is made up of 101 members representing 34 separate states, four units of geographically grouped states and one importer unit. Any beef producer who owns cattle may be nominated. Producers must be nominated by a USDA certified producer organization (Nevada Cattlemen’s Association) and submit a completed application. USDA will select appointees from the nominated producers. Interested Nevada producers should express their interest in serving by reaching out to Martin Paris at [email protected] by June 1.
