When committees are meeting at the Cattle Industry Convention or other meetings involving the Beef Board you’ll find plenty of seating for non-members to sit and watch the proceedings. You’ll often find cattle producers who just want to see what goes on in these meetings and who want to learn more about the Beef Checkoff.
One of them I spoke with during the 2013 Convention was Patty Bikowsky who is a dairy producer from New York. Patty attended the Dairy Producer Communications Forum and says the information provided was wonderful and so was the food. When it comes to the restructuring of the committees that we saw for the first time here at this meeting she was a little skeptical at first. But after attending the Freedom to Operate committee she thinks it will work out well.
