Clay Burtrum named Vice Chair of Federation of State Beef Councils
Stillwater cattleman Clay Burtrum has been elected vice chairman of the Federation of State Beef Councils, a division of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Burtrum has served as the interim vice chair for the last five months and was elected to continue in this position July 29 at the NCBA Board of Directors meeting in Denver. He will serve in the post through the NCBA Annual Meeting next February.

Active in numerous agriculture organizations, Burtrum served three years as NCBA Federation Region IV vice president and has also served on the Beef Promotion Operating Committee for five years. The 20-member BPOC determines how the national half of the $1-per-head beef checkoff will be spent in research, education, information and promotion programs.

“Industry organizations must work hard to promote the many healthy aspects of eating beef and continue to educate the public,” says Burtrum. “At the same time, we need to make sure beef producers are armed with good and accurate information so that they are able to properly stand up to the competition. It’s our livelihood, and it’s our job to defend it.”

In addition to his service to the Federation and BPOC, Burtrum has held leadership roles in the Oklahoma Beef Council, the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association and on national Beef Checkoff committees. He currently is a member of the Oklahoma State Board of Agriculture. Burtrum has also served the Payne County Farm Service Agency and the Oklahoma Ag Leadership Program, where he serves on the Advisory Committee. He is a director of the Oklahoma State Animal Science Alumni Association Board.

“Clay has a proven track record of experienced leadership in the Federation and in the other organizations he has served,” says Heather Buckmaster, OBC executive director. “We know he is a dedicated volunteer leader who will provide strong, strategic and insightful leadership.”

Burtrum is co-owner of Burtrum Cattle LLC, a family operation that includes a commercial cow-calf operation and ranch-raised stockers on wheat pasture. He also co-owns Farm Data Services, an agriculture accounting firm that specializes in managerial accounting, appraisals and crop insurance for farmers, ranchers, feedlots and rural businesses.

Burtrum is an Oklahoma native and a graduate of Oklahoma State University with a degree in animal science biotechnology.
