Budget Realities Will Force Hard Choices for Beef Board Members Meeting in Phoenix

Tue, 27 Jan 2009 21:58:52 CST

Budget Realities Will Force Hard Choices for Beef Board Members Meeting in Phoenix As the 2009 Cattle Industry Convention gets underway in Phoenix, there were several committee meetings being held on Tuesday at various locations in downtown Phoenix. Included inthe meetings going on was the Operating Committee of the Cattlemen's Beef Board. (We continue to work on getting into Phoenix- Southwest Promises they will be flying on Wednesday once again and we will get there by early afternoon we hope)

Chairing the Beef Board and the Operating Committee this year is Dave Bateman, a cattle producer from Illinois. Bateman says there are a couple of big issues that Beef Board members must come to grips with in Phoenix in 2009.

The first one is the issue of declining revenues. That’s forcing the Board to look at how to stretch their dollars further and focus on the essential programs while still moving demand forward in this kind of economy.

Another one is the improvements process they’ve been going through for the last year. He says they’ll be getting recommendations from the Administrative Subcommittee and Executive Committee on that.

Beef Board Blogger Chuck Zimmerman talked with Dave Bateman on Tuesday evening- and we wanted to share the comments of this beef industry leader with you- just click on the Listen Bar below for that conversation.
