Cattle Feeders Name Scott Anderson as 2021 TCFA Chairman

Tue, 06 Oct 2020 12:05:33 CDT

Cattle Feeders Name Scott Anderson as 2021 TCFA Chairman  Scott Anderson, co-owner of CRI feeders in Guymon, Okla., has been elected the 2021 Texas Cattle Feeders Association Chairman. Anderson has owned and managed the feedyard since 2004.
Joining Anderson on the 2021 officer team is Kevin Buse, Hereford, who will serve as chairman-elect, and Michael Bezner, Dalhart, who will serve as vice chairman.

“It’s an honor to serve the cattle feeding industry in this capacity and during such a unique time,” Anderson said. “Today, the entire beef supply chain is facing several challenges that will impact the future, and, quite frankly, the sustainability of our collective business.

“But I am optimistic we will respond to meet and overcome these challenges and find solutions that continue to make us stronger, better and more resilient.”
Despite market challenges posed by COVID-19, Anderson said there are opportunities for the U.S. beef industry to continue marketing to domestic and global consumers.
Exports add an additional $350 of value per head. Maintaining current export markets and related carcass value is a priority, and also presents opportunity for growth.
“Our sustainability as an industry relies on our ability to maintain, and grow, both domestic and export demand,” he said.

Ross Wilson, president and CEO of TCFA, said Anderson is focused, deliberate and thoughtful in his efforts to do what is best for cattle feeders.

“He continues to look for ways to better the industry,” Wilson said. “He’s very determined, a required skill for any feedyard owner in this climate, but particularly important for those brave enough to lead.”
TCFA’s membership is comprised of feeders and feedyards in the three-state region of Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Leaders from all three states play a large role in the association.

Anderson’s influence and respect does not end in the three-state region. He has served the industry on a national level through his role as Secretary/Treasurer of the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef and on the Board of Directors of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.

“Scott is dedicated to the industry he loves,” Wilson said. “He’s volunteered his time to better the entire industry."
