J D Alexander Ready to Take the Reins of NCBA in 2012

J.D. Alexander, a cattlemen in Nebraska, is preparing to take over the National Cattlemen's Beef Association as President in February 2012 at the end of the Cattle Industry Convention. Alexander has been involved in the cattle industry officially since 1984, when he took over the ownership of Alexander Cattle & Farms.

We talked with Alexander about a variety of issues that NCBA could be facing in the upcoming year and how he plans to take on these issues in 2012. Alexander says that they are looking forward to 2012 after a successful year in 2011 with the final passing of the free trade agreements, which they have been battling for the past five years. Over the last couple of days- we have featured Alexander on our daily Beef Buzz reports- and we have a digital online version of the Beef Buzz that gives you the complete interview we did in the final days of 2011 with this very personable cattle industry leader.

Alexander adds that the estate tax is another issue that farmers and ranchers will be facing in 2012. Alexander says that the issue of the death tax has always been high on the list for NCBA and they are going to work towards a plan that will allow producers to pass on their business to the next generation.

Also, there is always the issue of legislation. Alexander says that the NCBA has a strong presence in Washington, D.C. with their office to help make sure that regulations aren't overburdensome on farmers and ranchers.

The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network- but is also a regular audio feature found on this website as well.

(This Beef Buzz is a special replay as we approach the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show early next month in Nashville)
