Stockmen Facing the Storm – Silver Linings?


“Together Facing the Storm” was the theme for the 82nd Annual North Dakota Stockmen’s Association Convention and Trade Show in Bismarck last week.  

During Friday’s session, producers heard a national issues update from National Cattlemen’s Beef Association CEO Forrest Roberts and NCBA President Bill Donald.  Among the topics of discussion were the GIPSA rule, potentially onerous regulation proposals from the EPA, and challenging weather conditions that have affected producers across the country.

We talked with NCBA CEO Forrest Roberts at the conclusion of Friday’s trade show about some of opportunities that lay ahead for the industry.
