NCBA CEO Forrest Roberts Discusses Beef Checkoff Review on Wednesday's Agritalk

NCBA CEO Forrest Roberts Discusses Beef Checkoff Review on Wednesday's Agritalk The Chief Executive Officer of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, Forrest Roberts, spent a few minutes with host Mike Adams of Agritalk on the nationally syndicated radio program on Wednesday. He told Adams that NCBA continues to work to "understand the facts" from the Compliance Review conducted for the Cattlemen's Beef Board that shows problems with how the NCBA has handled Beef Checkoff funds and he adds that they will "acknowledge mistakes that were made and will act to correct them immediately."

Roberts added that NCBA wants to do what is needed to "uphold the integrity of the financial firewall between checkoff and policy sides of the organization."

He admits that they did receive a draft version of the report- answered point by point the questions raised by the CPA firm and did see some differences from the draft report and the final report that came out Monday evening. That Final Compliance Review still has a pattern of multiple unresolved issues in how the money was used and if the charge to the checkoff is legitimate or not.

Roberts was not asked about the specific claim by the CPA firm about spousal travel to New Zealand and whether that was an accounting error or not. USDA regulations are very clear that travel by a spouse is never allowed to be paid for by checkoff funds.
