Federation of State Beef Councils Vote to Stay with NCBA- but Act in a More Independent Manner

Federation of State Beef Councils Vote to Stay with NCBA- but Act in a More Independent Manner The Federation of State Beef Councils passed a resolution July 31, 2010, during the Cattle Industry Summer Conference in Denver, Colo., to maintain its partnership with the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Federation Division Chair Scott George said the members of the Federation voted to continue its current operating structure with NCBA. However, George said it was clear that greater independence is needed but not separation.

"We asked our Federation people where they want to be housed. The issue was whether or not the Federation should be separated from NCBA or stay with the national organization," said George, who is also a Wyoming dairy and beef producer. "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."

George said the driving factor behind the Federation's vote was efficiency of resources. He said during the 14-year history with NCBA, the Federation has been able to rapidly address issues that could potentially impact the beef industry.

"As we debate this issue, I cannot help but remember seven years ago when the first case of BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) was discovered in the United States," he said. "It was because of this outstanding partnership that the discovery did not have a devastating impact on U.S. cattle producers."
