AUSTIN -- The Texas Beef Council’s newly elected board of directors began the new fiscal year leading the state’s producer-run beef marketing organization. The Texas Beef Council board of directors consists entirely of beef producers providing representation of the state through organization affiliation, according to an Oct. 16 Texas Beef Council press release. In addition, the board may elect two directors at large, without nomination by a qualified organization, to round out the board with equitable geographic and sector representation.

Coleman Locke, a purebred Brahman breeder from Hungerford, is the newly elected chairman of the board. Locke represents the Texas Purebred Cattle Alliance and is a partner and president of the family-owned and -operated J.D. Hudgins Inc.

The Texas Beef Council board establishes the budget and ultimately decides which demand building programs receive check-off funding. Directors can serve up to six consecutive one-year terms on the Texas Beef Council board.

Dave Edmiston of Brady will represent Texas Farm Bureau on the board and is the newly elected vice chairman. Edmiston is a cow-calf producer and ranches in the heart of Texas.

Joining Locke and Edmiston on the executive committee are Bruce Dopslauf, Steve Swenson, and outgoing chair Ken Leiber. The executive committee acts for the entire board on matters that require action between regularly scheduled meetings for the full 20-member board.

“For more than 25 years Texas beef producers have been making decisions about where their check-off dollars are invested in the areas of promotion, research, and education,” said Richard Wortham, Texas Beef Council executive vice president. “I’m confident in our board’s vision and strategic plan that will be implemented through fiscal year 2014.”
