Beef operations are a big part of any dairy farm, so it’s only fitting that a dairy man has risen to one of the top leadership positions at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). During the recent Cattle Industry Convention in Denver, Scott George, a family dairy farmer from Cody, Wyoming, was elected as the new vice president for NCBA, switching over from leadership with the Federation of State Beef Councils where he just finished a year as chairman.
In this edition of the Milking Parlor, we talk with George and get his thoughts on the new structure for the Federation, as well as the NCBA’s new Beef Industry Long Range Plan that includes the vision statement of “An industry united around a common goal of being the world’s most trusted and preferred source of beef and beef products.” In addition, George gives us his thoughts on how the beef industry needs to work with all of the other agriculture industries out there to make sure consumers have confidence in their food supply.
It’s an interesting conversation, and you can hear more of what he has to say or download the podcast here:
