Columbia, MO (AgNewsWire) – A Missouri cattle producer who is also the director of MFA Health Track Beef Alliance is now wearing yet another hat as the new leader of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA). Mike John of Huntsville, Mo was elected president of the 230,000 member organization on February 4 in Denver, CO.
John says one of the most important issues facing the cattle industry right now is trade. “We need to make sure that we’re staying proactive in that process. There’s been some good news with additional markets opening up and talk of a free trade agreement with Korea, so that’s good news,” said John. The new NCBA president says he is very excited about the beef cattle industry’s new Long Range Plan. (Full Release)
