WASHINGTON -- U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary Tom Vilsack announced 40 appointments to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, including five appointees from Texas. According to a USDA Dec. 6 press release, all appointees will serve 3-year terms.

In 2009, according to USDA statistics, top beef-producing states included Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, California, and Oklahoma.

Newly appointed Texas members representing cattle producers are: Charles A. Kiker III, Charles L. Ezer, Anne I. Anderson, V. Anne Wirtz, and Jackie M. Means.

The board oversees the collection of $1 per head on all cattle sold in the United States, and $1-per-head equivalent on imported cattle, beef, and beef products. In addition, the board contracts with established national, nonprofit, industry-governed organizations to implement programs of promotion, research, consumer information, industry information, foreign marketing, and producer communications.

The 106-member board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985. The secretary selects the appointees nominated by beef, veal, dairy, and importers certified organizations.

The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service monitors operation of the board.
