Greg Hanes Talks Fiscal Year 2022 for the Cattlemen's Beef Board
Thu, 02 Dec 2021 11:27:48 CST
Earlier in the year, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board’s $40 million budget was approved for fiscal year 2022. Going forward, Greg Hanes, CEO of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board, told Ron Hays, director of Radio Oklahoma Ag Network, sustainability will be the focus of marking efforts.
Listen to Ron's conversation with Greg here.
“Sustainability has been a really key issue,” Hanes said. “Now, we have all the global climate summits going on - this is definitely a big issue, so we are trying to keep that at the forefront of the industry.”
Hanes said the CBB is also focused on consumer outreach among an incredibly competitive protein market.
“I think this is a chance to continue to push back (against) other animal proteins and plant-based meats,” Hanes said. “Demand for beef is the highest it has been in 30 years, so we really want to keep that momentum going.”
Also important of all is the Beef Checkoff’s communications with producers. Hanes said producers sometimes tell him that he is preaching to the choir when it comes to the Beef Checkoff’s impact on the industry.
“I look at it as an annual report to our shareholders,” Hanes said. “Every producer out there is paying into the Checkoff, so they have a vested interesting in this.”
Hanes said if misperceptions about the beef industry are out there, Beef Checkoff dollars will always be there to educate consumers and counter incorrection information.
