"The Cattlemen's Beef Board works to build demand for beef by helping to maintain and expand markets through their research, promotion, and information sharing efforts," said Perdue. "Their work represents all segments of the beef industry and I know that the agricultural sector will be well served by them."
The Cattlemen's Beef Promotion and Research Board is composed of 99 members, all of whom are beef producers or importers of cattle, beef or beef products. The board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985.
Since 1966, Congress has authorized the establishment of 22 industry-funded research and promotion boards. They empower farmers and ranchers to leverage their own resources to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets, and conduct important research and promotion activities. USDA's Agricultural Marketing Services provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which ensures fiscal accountability and program integrity for participating stakeholders.
