The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association (USCA) and the National Farmers Union have submitted joint comments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Marketing Services in support of the proposed rule, “Beef Promotion and Research Reapportionment,” which was published in the April 4 edition of the Federal Register. As stated in the comments, “The adjustments made in the proposed rule will balance the structure of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board both geographically and in relation to importers and domestic producers.”

According to a May 6 USCA press release, the cattlemen’s association’s comments highlight the fact that the reduced board seats reflect the decrease in cattle herd numbers that has occurred since the last reapportionment.

USCA President Jon Wooster remarked, “In addition to adjusting the number of seats on the board, the Act requires that the make-up of the board accurately represents the nation’s cattle industry. In order to do this, representation must come from all segments of the beef industry. While representation on this board is being reduced, it is a time to reflect on the current composition of the board in an effort to ensure that the interests of all sizes and make-ups of operations are also being represented.

“The make-up of a board tasked with representing the needs of an industry must reflect the needs of all of those within its jurisdiction. We at USCA feel that in order to be an accurate representation of the nation’s cattle industry, the board must include representation from a multitude of industry associations, both at the state and at the national level, and must not exclude non-affiliated producers.”

The cattlemen’s association applauds the department and its continued attention to following the provisions of the Act.
