Cindy Zimmerman

More than 600 cattle industry leaders are attending the Cattle Industry Summer Business Meeting in Denver this week to help create direction for critical industry programs.

The event includes meetings of cattlemen and women representing the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, American National CattleWomen and National Cattlemen’s Foundation. Among the purposes of the yearly conference is to create a framework for checkoff and policy efforts on behalf of U.S. cattle producers for the upcoming fiscal year, which for NCBA and the Cattlemen’s Beef Board begins Oct. 1.

Marvin Kokes, NCBA Senior Vice President for Corporate Relations and Events, provides an overview of the meeting. Interview with Marvin Kokes, NCBA
