U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced 33 appointments to the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board. All appointees will serve 3-year terms.

“These appointees represent a cross section of the beef industry and I am confident that beef producers and importers of cattle, beef, and beef products will be well served by them,” Vilsack said in a Nov. 27 U.S. Department of Agriculture press release.

Newly appointed members from Texas representing cattle producers are Larry B. Pratt, Dave R. Edmiston, Bruce D. Dopslauf, and Charles C. Risinger, M.D.

Research and promotion programs are industry-funded, authorized by Congress, and date back to 1966. Since then, Congress has authorized the establishment of 20 research and promotion boards. They empower farmers and ranchers to leverage their own resources to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets, and conduct important research and promotion activities. The USDA Agricultural Marketing Service provides oversight, paid for by industry assessments, which ensures fiscal responsibility, program efficiency, and fair treatment of participating stakeholders.

The 103-member board is authorized by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985. The Secretary selects the appointees from nominations submitted by eligible organizations representing beef, veal, and dairy producers and importers of cattle, beef, or beef products.
