The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association urged the Cattlemen’s Beef Board to refocus its attention on the Cattlemen’s Beef Board Roles and Responsibilities Committee’s recommended changes to Beef Board policy and procedures. In light of a report that recent charges of misconduct brought by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) against the Cattlemen’s Beef Board leadership have been resolved, the Beef Board is urged to address the issue of check-off governance, according to a June 21 U.S. Cattlemen’s Association press release. The ongoing compliance review of NCBA now shows a total of $305,365 in check-off misappropriations for fiscal years 2008-10, according to an update released by the Beef Board last week. On June 8, the Cattlemen’s Beef Board attorneys sent a response to NCBA’s leadership indicating that its allegations of misconduct and unethical behavior had been investigated and resolved. . . .
