State Beef Councils, NCBA Still "Partners"

The Federation of State Beef Councils passed a resolution to maintain its partnership with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) during the Cattle Industry Summer Conference in Denver, CO.

The Federation of State Beef Councils passed a resolution to maintain its partnership with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) during the Cattle Industry Summer Conference in Denver, CO. Members of the Federation voted to continue its current operating structure with NCBA, according to Scott George, Federation division chair. He added greater independence is needed but not separation.

“We asked our Federation people where they want to be housed,” said George, who is also a Wyoming dairy and beef producer. “The issue was whether or not the Federation should be separated from NCBA or stay with the national organization. They decided to stay under the NCBA umbrella but act in a more independent manner. As we move forward, we will be working to develop a structure that ensures greater independence, while still maintaining our 14-year successful working relationship with NCBA.”
